Has anyone recently seen this free spirit who lives off the largesse of others, and who relies entirely upon free veterinary care to keep his three horses healthy?
Is Johnny Appleseed still living with the Judge and her husband? I still think it is a hoot that she agreed to have him spend just one night, and now he needs to stay "several weeks". Isn't that how it always goes with these "temporary house guests"? LOLOL
GreyStone, I agree with you. Mexican Meth is responsible for the destruction of at least two Indian tribes in Wyoming, plus countless other lives. There is NO excuse for leniency granted in these Meth cases, in my view, and it is one of the best reasons to push for utter SEALING UP of the southern U.S. border.
I would like to see everyone who goes in or out of the U.S. through Mexico be forced to FLY. Then the U.S. Customs officials would have a chance to actually check I.D.'s, contents of luggage, etc., and it would stop all the truckloads of human and drug cargo.
I envision at least a 30-foot high, solid concrete wall several feet thick with our border patrol in towers overlooking the border, with orders to shoot anyone attempting to cross into he U.S. Yes, I know this sounds extreme, but I think that extreme measures are required when the circumstances of our attack are extreme. If there is anything that is clear from all of the Arizona demonstrations against enforcement of U.S. immigration law, it is that La Raza and the other pro-illegal groups have NO respect for our people, our country, our langauge, our flags, our government, our struggling economy, our income tax structure to which they contribute zip, etc. They ALL need to forcibly be kept out.
Anyway, I enjoyed your use of "fashionable". It is a somewhat old-fashioned word that is not used enough.
GreyStone, you used the word "fashionable". Are you a female? It's not really a guy-word, especially not among the macho "he-men" with which Moffat County is heavily populated. So, are you a woman? Just curious.
C'mon, Nim...... ya gotta admit that was a goofy response, a nonsequitur really. People study archaeology, too, but not because they plan to become rocks.
McGruber, I have to confess. You had me fooled. I thought I was dealing with an intelligent, informed human being who simply held an opposing point of view. I was wrong on two out of three: I still assume you are a human being, however.... I got that one right. It's very telling when you can't win a discussion and thus resort to "blah blah blah".
GreyStone, you're too funny! After I post this, I must leave due to a filing deadline today, but posting here is a lot more fun.
If the animal rights people are monitoring this blog, I hope they will get right over to Jeffco. The Mexican Rodeo held last week near Golden netted some 12 injured calves due to the barbaric practice of the caballeros of reaching down from the horse, grabbing the calf's tail, and swinging the calf around until one or more of its legs is broken. The owner of the ranch where the injured and dying calves were secreted is one Miguel Garcia, who needed an English voice-over on Fox 31 News last Friday @ 9pm.
Jeffco Sheriff: Please get those animal cruelty charges filed.
ICE: Check on the immigration status of Miguel Garcia and the other barbarians who swung calves around during the rodeo. Don't wait for Jeffco to figure it out.
Jharr58 and Rebelgirl: Please understand that I get the romance part of the story, but I just don't buy into it like you two apparently do.
I fully understand that this is a romantic story about Johnny Appleseed, just a boy and his horses. The guy is taking a several-month trip with no money. Do the math. Where do you think that some or all of the donated funds are going? I have to admit that the notion of carrying a photo of a dying child is a nice touch, but I have always been squeamish about exploiting those in dire straits.
GreyStone: You make some very good points. I also am amused that it is a judge who has been suckered in by this guy.... and didn't the article say that he was getting the judge to do his laundry? Hilarious. Hopefully the judge is reserving her hard-hitting legal analysis for the courtroom.
Maybe I am just suspicious of people and their motives until my trust has been gained, but it seems entirely selfish for this guy to put his horses through this kind of experience. If the guy enjoys being hungry for two days, because he did not have the foresight to bring any money on his several-month trip, good for him. Did the horses, however, sign on for hunger and thirst? I doubt it.
