QB, Like your pictures, the girls & the pony are awesome, new shoes just brightens everything up. Keeps pictures coming, as those girls will grow up fast, before your eyes. My daughters did, & now my youngest grandaughter is 11, & I'm old!!
PS jubal, No matter what age, we all do things, we can't believe we did at times. All we can can do is laugh at ourselves for a moment, & move forward. I don't know if I'm older or younger than you, but I've had my moments, just can't recall them now!!! PD
I'll admit that I have not read all the posts, but when you have members of the GOP complain about Trump's use words as well the Joints Chiefs of Staff, that is not just the media putting words in his mouth. PD
So..as it turns out, Margaritas mom is broke to ride..bareback by a 3 year old on a lead line, but HEY, Ill take it! I put Emmy on Faye (Margaritas mom) first to see how she would react and she was totally fine with it, so I put her little sister Lilly on and we had the best time! The older girls got to ride while I led Lilly on Faye and Margarita followed right along. It worked out perfectly. Lilly learned a lot of balance and body control today and she loved it and did awesome! Faye is such a layed back little mare, explains why Margarita is so darn awesome.
I had to buy Lilly some shoes before she rode today. She kept being sent to the barn in flip flops. Thank goodness for the thrift store next door where I got 4 pairs of shoes for her for $2. In the end 2 pair fit and 2 pair didnt but at least she wont be in flip flops! I dont require boots in the summer because they ride bareback in the summer, so tennis shoes are ok with me. She loves her sequined sparkly shoes I got her lol!
Violence in response to violence as an answer? I do not think that is what the public should engage in as I feel that puts both groups in the wrong and the true purpose gets lost in criminal activity. I would prefer to see law enforcement or military handle those engaged in violence, especially during/at public demonstrations and rallies.
I repeat again:
I understand your clarification that Nazi German underlings, when they learned what the Furor was actually doing, rebelled against it and that Hitler and his close cronies are who are truly to blame for the mass murder of a race of people .... but today's whatever-you-want-to-call-them, despicable as their beliefs are, weren't responsible either. However, I fully agree with you that it is especially troubling that these people *know* what Hitler and his Nazis stood for and perpetrated against people, yet they persist in idolizing that ideology.
I have never knowingly spoken with anyone associated with any of these hate-groups. But I live in the South and I may have spoken with people belonging to these groups while shopping or working at the Sheriff Office or Library. In fact, I live in the town/county where the last mass lynching of black people occurred in America. On my way to work I drive past the funeral home where their bodies were taken to. I think of these four (five, one of the women was pregnant) people often and I would NOT like to see this kind of violence against people return.
I do agree that any of these hate-groups could become dangerous if they become further emboldened and mob mentality takes over. This is another reason I am not a fan of meeting them with violence as it is an invitation for escalation and I fear that people, innocent people, WILL die.
