"I think people just want to move on from that period " Actually, I count myself in that group, Jerry. I have no special emotional attachment as the flag forms no part of my heritage....

Re: My education from a white Southerner
Charles, You deserve big credit for being much more empathetic than many here! But can you see... if we start taking down symbols and whatnots that are deemed "divisive" -- we might...

Dwindling Resources? Blame it on the Rabbits and the Pigs
So who are the major consumers of the world's resources? Rabbits - China, India, Philippines and a host of other poor countries. Pigs -- Canada, US, Australia, and a few others who consum...

Re: Hogwashed Population Bomb
Ian, I think we are now back on the same page (not necessarily meaning you agree with me, but just that you know where I am coming from). My strong kicking back ("hogwash") is reall...

Re: My Apologies - I Too Was Confused

Re: Re: Re: Frontier Pro Portable Water Filter (Series III Green Line Bacteria Filter)
Jimmy, You misread my post up above. I am aware my Frontier Pro does nothing to block viruses -- which is why I pair it with chlorine. My point is that the new Frontier Green Line has the pote...

Re: Population Bomb
All pretty hogwash, actually (the article, not Ian or Jerry). Laws are needed to discourage people from doing something they wish to do. And draconian laws to discourage people from doing what ...

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...

Micropur MP 1 Chlorine Dioxide Water Purifier Tablet
Comparison to Potable Aqua above is incorrect. For bacteria and viruses, Micropur is just as effective and easy to use (15 minutes treatment time). It is only for protozoa (e.g. cryptosporidium) t...
