    Default OT - If you needed any more proof about the intelligence of Kansans

    Whenever I read about the latest idiotic exploits of the Kansas state
    legislature, I'm damn glad I live on the Missouri side of the line. But
    someone has to vote elect the Brownbacks of this world, and here are some of
    them now...

    The aftermath of a tornado can be quite startling. We don't get many
    here in Canada, but when we do, they're like 'oh my God!'
    I went to visit my Godfather's tobacco farm the day after the
    Woodstock Tornado took his farm away. I think it was 1977, or '78.
    My cousin was in the barn with his workers who were going to start the
    harvest the very next day. He saw what was coming and told everyone
    to hit the deck. They did. None of them got harmed, but the tornado
    took the whole friggin' barn away. It took the greenhouse, it took
    all 7 tobacco kilns, it took tying machinery and tossed it into the
    bush. The house remained standing. The International plowing/disking
    tractor got through unscathed. The FarmAll tractor got lunched. 80%
    of the tobacco got lunched. 54 acres I believe. Most of the
    livestock (chickens, pork, ducks and geese) were killed, and their
    pens were destroyed. You could see in the bush, where the tornado
    came through. It was like a wide swath had been cut through the
    bush. Their 1956 GMC 1/2 ton was not damaged. I had the same truck
    when I was out west in 1974.
    Their dog, whenever he heard a storm coming in the aftermath would
    always start to whimper. It scared the bejeesus out of him.
    One duck went crazy. It started to burn for some reason, and then the
    tornado took it. LOL that last statement was just a joke:
    i.e. You're as crazy as a burning duck in a tornado.

    Correct. When I was there, it was as though a bomb had blown the ****
    out of their farm. Their farm was about 2km away from the village of
    Vanessa.

    No idea what you're alluding to because it's a double ententre - but I
    can only hope you're as disgusted as I am by his attitude. No idea
    what the political situation is that he's talking about, but he might
    be right... or maybe he's Right.

    Two tornados forming in the background of a wedding photo is not what I would call a good omen for a marriage. As for Kansas, like Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, Wisconsin and most of the south, for some reason they have decided that the last 150 or so years of the United States was a total failure, andthey seem quite determined to oppose all the accumulated evils of Post President Buchanan America.

    Then they learn that Buchanan was likely gay, and they have to go back
    further to the age of Franklin Pierce.

    Sam Brownback is a throwback to the stone ages. We call him Governor
    "trans-vaginal ultrasound."

    You have to love the optimism of that couple. Some would see a tornado as
    being an omen of back times. But no, it's just another one of god's gifts
    to the happy couple on their wedding day. The only thing missing was an
    Indian massacre - in His mercy.

    Just to pick a nit-- 'relative' - nor ancestor. Barbara is descended
    from a 4th cousin of the pres. [Makes W, the 4th cousin, 5 times
    removed]

    [And though we find no relationship to Pierce, my wife is a 10th
    cousin to W. -- and I'm an 8th cousin to Dick Cheney. -- so this
    relationship crap don't flow downhill.<g>]

    Yes, Pierce and Bush share an early New England ancestor named Thomas
    Pierce.

    Franklin Pierce is also the only incumbent President in history not to
    recieve his own party's nomination for a second term.
