:lol: Well at least we have a place to refer folks worried about ash disposal, radioactive ash, and other such topics related to the fine arts. You won't see too many blue collar folks on that forum. :lol: :lol:

Read a few posts and they seem more to be concerned with being a good neighbor as oppossed to banning it outright. A lot are concerning open pit burning for the entertainment value or with wood stoves, I'd imagine that site wouldn't exist if they were burning Anthracite. :D

Was good for a laugh or two. But those kind of people need to be watched, they favor government intervention, in the form of laws, to protect the uneducated, unwashed masses from themselves.

And I favor Darwinism - let the uneducated, unwashed masses "off themselves" due to stupidity, inbreeding, and moral decay. Natural selection is there for a purpose.

OTOH, one of my favorite sayings is: "God must love stupid people 'cause he sure made a lot of them".

Wow - Read the post about the backyard BBQ'r. I would strongly favor a premptive ban for everyone associated with that site! Going to need more meds if I read any more ( something stronger than the cap'n) Around here you can have an outdoor fire as long as you are 'cooking' on it.

Not if those kind of people have their way. Before you know it we will have detailed instructions on how to push a thumbtack into a corkboard because some knucklehead had the brilliant thought that millions of people may seriously injure themselves because they didn't know how to use a thumbtack properly.
It's all about the dumbing down of America. Someday we'll all just be a bunch of blithering idiots, totally unable to help ourselves, depending on the government to assist us with every minute detail of our miserable lives. :flush:

"I remember when I was a college student looking for a house to rent. Invariably, as soon as I walked in the front door I could tell if it had coal heat. It's kind of like getting inside a car or hotel room and being able to smell the lingering aroma of cigarette smoke."

yea I bet this guy can tell who has a college degree just by looking at a group of people too...

I took about 5 minutes of that site, that's enough for me. Those people are really closed minded morons. Here's my case for allowing fires: Around here a dump permit costs $80, a recycle permit is free. Guess what, the do-it-yourselfers have a barrel and burn in it once a month. All the food garbage goes to the livestock/pets or the compost heap; plastics, cans, glass all get recycled. Metal gets recycled, paper gets recycled. Some stuff gets burned up, it's not much and is much better to have a bag full of wrappers burning than a dozen bags full of everything going to the landfill. The ashes get used in the garden.

Guess it depends where you live, burn barrel would be out of the question where I live. Probably illegal too but this is very close housing. As for telling me i can't bar-b-q ... that's laughable.

Hi Guys:

The kind of people you describe on that website are quite dangerous and really do pose a threat to our civil liberties. They are the intellectual elite (like the Clintons) who think that THEY know best how YOU should live YOUR life. They seek and obtain positions of economic and political power and impose their will on the rest of us through laws, rules and regulations. They actually believe they are serving a noble cause; to protect us from ourselves. (By the way, the aforementioned laws, rules and regulations rarely apply to them.)

What's that you say? Freedom of choice? Individual rights? Personal responsibity? NO WAY; they'll have none of that!

Case in point. A neighbor's daughter recently obtained her PhD in Environmental Science from UCLA-Berkeley. Yes, she is a very bright girl but she is also a left-wing Democrat/Socialist/Communist. If you haven't noticed, we didn't win the Cold War, we lost it badly. The enemy has completely infiltrated all of our educational institutions and are busy brainwashing our children. This young lady is living proof of that.

She also looks down her nose at anyone who isn't as intelligent as she is. She once commented to me that "the people in Pennsylvania (rural Pocono Mountain region) shouldn't be allowed to own guns because they are so stupid." I pointed out that the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution grants the right to bear arms to all citizens without regard to intellectual ability. I added that I would be more concerned with the moral character of my fellow gun owners than with their standardized test scores. I was wasting my breath; she didn't hear a thing I said. Why should she listen to me? I'm not as smart as she is. For her birthday, I threatened to get her an NRA membership and have the monthly magazine shipped to the university in California where she teaches (brainwashes) so that all of her colleagues could see it. If looks could kill! She really got nervous about it.

People like this have huge egos and not an ounce of humility. They love power over others and are on a mission to get and use as much as they can. Beware of them.

I'm sorry I rambled on so much but this thread really hit a nerve with me. Peace, health and happiness in the New Year.

Funny, never knew where you lived could effect your intellectual capacity. Just as long as we don't count those Kentucky/Tennessee Mountain folk...

:out:

Had a similar situation with a someone I knew that had moved to Phoenix. Nice place but I get there and she's going off about how much better it is... Lives in a condo type developement, i.e rat trap. Can't do nothing, no sidewalks etc. It was just so controlled, nice pool and everything but who the hell cares. I'll take my free and open woods any day.

Apparently North Carolina: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chattooga_River

The river was used as a setting for the fictional "Cahulawassee River" in the film Deliverance.
