First off, guys, remember that Bjorn is from north of the mason-Dixon line. You don't expect much from those folks. You just kinda smile and shake your head. Lord bless their little pea-pickin' hearts.
I just had to add that IDDEE's Comments about Northeners was a rude as anything Bjorn said in this post. For starters, I feel insulted to be generically tossed in with anyone because I live in Northern States.
Seriously, IDDEE and BJORN - you both are painting with too wide a brush and you are both insulting. I'll keep this post visible but leave it locked. But I need everyone to think just a second, take everything BOTH these me said and see where it could land them in the rules. Bjorn has had a warning and a slap on the wrist before - he's gonna find himself out of the forum with this conduct and IDDEE, I know you have old school thinking that in my opinion are bigoted and racist at times - do you really want to live up to stereotypes that do nothing but make you seem a hundred years behind the times, while Bjorn just comes of as an ass for starting trouble over and over again, that is my humble opinion?! Since name calling seemed to be the theme of this post, I thought it fitting to at least express how I feel about Bjorn. Of course, I'm just another member, as all the mods are - that's why we have rules and Bjorn, you've had a good run here, all personal feelings aside, but you are now getting into your old habit of jabbing someone and then playing poor Bjorn when you get response. Seen that movie again and again, and I can only watch any movie so many times before I erase if from my computer. You want to talk code, that should be an easy on to figure out.
Iddee... you are a product of upbringing, any biases you have toward anyone is in your bloodstream, that doesn't make it any more acceptable. I'm conservative and yet chose to live in a very racially diverse neighborhood - if you open your eyes enough, you start to realize there are two types of Americans, those who work hard to live the American and those who leech off the system. Most of the prior type rarely differ from location to location, they don't make the headlines, they live their lives and do the right things to someday retire and spend life playing with the grand-kids or seeing the country.
The latter, they milk us for all we have, make the papers, rob and steel and find themselves in jail or if they play it quiet, they just milk Welfare until Social Security final kicks in. Rather than blanket trash people who try and live the American Dream just because they are Yankees, aim you despise to the slugs that drain our tax dollars - these are all colors of people, from all 50 states, they aren't grouped by anything except they have learned how to screw us.
There are truly needy and they deserve all the help we can give, wounded vets, those born severally handicapped and by our own laws spouses who's mate die and have you kids to feed. These are the people who need us, the others are users and abusers.
But to BOTH OF YOU - if you look i this forum and see anyone who is milking the system and have done so for many decades, than I doubt they are beekeepers - they are people who work to buy expensive equipment, try vesting in a hobby or business and do it WHERE they live, how the Hell is that something you can sit with a straight face and say is soooo different from you. It is arrogant of you both. We are hard working people, trying to survive a nearly impossible economy - try playing on the same team instead of letting you Grand-father's bigotry sway your thinking. Grow up, both of you.
I think both of you are better than stirring the pot, and I look forward to not reading such garbage from either of you again. 3 pages of people digging in the crawl of others is enough and as one of those above the Mason Dixon line, Iddee I took offense to that - mainly cause you bundled me in the same bag as Bjorn
