Woodrow Call: [after beating a man nearly to death for hitting Newt he climbs on his horse and looks at the horrified towns people] I hate rude behavior in a man. I won’t tolerate it.

    reminds us of a favorite scene in another cowboy film, 'Quigley Down Under'.

    Quigley (Tom Selleck) is a marksman with a Sharp's rifle, and eschews handguns; claiming 'no use for them'. When he confronts- and defeats the bad guy Elliot Marsden (Alan Rickman) WITH a handgun, the incredulous Marsden looks at Quigley, and dies.

    To which Quigley says: 'I said I had no USE for them; never said I didn't know HOW to use them'…

      I absolutely LOVE that line, not to mention the whole movie.

      One of my favorite movies as well. Other than our 2 beautiful daughters, another thing the ex gave me was a love of certain movies I would have never otherwised watched. Some are true classics, others are just goofy comedies. But I do appreciate that part of it. That really was an awesome movie.

    Just rec'd my new Voter Registration Certificate (Certificado de Registro Electoral) for those that can't read ENGLISH, but
    I noticed something I had never paid attention to. A box marked VUID with a 10 digit number. The number is the same as last time. So I looked up the meaning : Virtual User Input Device. No other explanation given.
    Anyone know what the heck that means?

    • DB523 says:

      hi I Me… I would ask this ? again… ick.

      • I_Me_Mine says:

        Hey DB,
        Adding ick took me to the hopkinsville kentuckian / may 26, 1899. It didn't answer my question, but there was a good article entitled "A lunatics retort". Mildly amusing.
        See advertisement as well for "Prickly Ash Bitters". I wish I had some of that right now ; )

        I'm not very good at this internet thing…can't teach an old dog new tricks as they say.

        • DB523 says:

          Hey back I.. I think I was too short hand with my comment to you. 1- I thought your post was very interesting and deserved to be "posted again" (I did say "ask" ) because I thought it seemed buried and might receive more attention if re-posted elsewhere. 2- my "ick" was just (way too short) short hand for saying that level of surveillance implied by your registration was…"iky" or better put… real creepy.

          There, is that more clear? adding "ick" to your search must have been an eye opener!

          • I_Me_Mine says:

            I thought you were being cryptic and I shouldn't be asking the question of what vuid means on-line.

            2- my "ick" was just (way too short) short hand for saying that level of surveillance implied by your registration was…"iky" or better put… real creepy.

            Do you mean my screen name? I came up with I_ME_MINE after dear leader. That's all he's about. Listen to his speeches. It's also a song title from the Beatles.
            I am not self centered. I believe in "We" and "US" and that's the only way we can beat back those that wish to destroy "us".

            I'll repost on a topic that is closer to my question.
            Thanks for your replies.

            • DB523 says:

              no, not your screen name, snort… I get the reference to our dear leader and you are straight on that one… ;p

              no my whole response was about your explaining something about a "new" style voter registration that I personally find exceptionally invasive…. well, just about everything our government touches these days is "exceptionally" invasive… sigh.

              But, yes, do try to re-post this under another heading, I really do think it is "interesting" in a creepy way.

              • I_Me_Mine says:

                DB,
                The voter card is re-issued every two years here in Texas. This year's card is exactly the same as the one from 2 years ago, except a different color. I had just never noticed the vuid box.

                BTW,
                This following article appears from that page in the Hopkinsville Kentuckian / May 26, 1899.

                TEACHERS WANTED
                UNION TEACHERS AGENCIES OF AMERICA

                So, This crap with unionizing teachers goes all the way back to 1899???

    My grandfather use to say this to me…………. in my wee youth.

    and i always liked………."a boy is a noise with some dirt on it".

    I bought a little refrigerator magnet with that engraved on it, from a KOA campground at the Kinzua Dam back about 1979 or so..

    It's still on my refrigerator today. 8^)

    One of my many favorites:

    "About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great chapter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers."

    Another favorite, from Goldwater:

    I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is "needed" before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents' "interests," I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.

    Here's one to make you chuckle:

    “Now, to be sure, there are plenty of Americans who are firmly convinced that we would all be better off if we grew our own food, bought only locally, kept firms small, eschewed modern conveniences like home appliances, went back to using only natural products, expropriated wealthy savers, harassed the capitalistic class until it felt itself unwelcome and vanished. This paradise has a name, and it is Haiti.”
