Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Apparently, science has found that it truly is good for you to do that once in a while.

To me, it just feels right.

To much a tender foot to walk around barefooted. Last time I was going to do a little gardening in front of the as I slipped on my gardening shoes the wife told me they had dog shit on them & to not walk thru the house from the back door to the front. 3 minutes in & the fire ants were on my left foot!

When I was a kid, I think I went most of the Summer barefoot! Makes this 54 year old geezer feel like a little brat again!

When we lived in central Florida I would go around the backyard and tend the garden barefoot all the time. Since moving up here to the north end of the swamp I wear my heavy boots all the time.

Too many things to get in trouble with for instance, 3 weeks ago I'm throwing some bird seed by the tree line to feed the wild birds, squirrels, etc.
As I start to sling seed I look down and see a 3ft long rattlesnake.
Gently take 2 steps back, about face and haul ass to the barn where I keep a 12ga loaded with 00 buck.
Run back to the seed area and took his head off. Snake was too small the skin so I gave him to the buzzards after I removed his rattle.

No more barefoot thru the tulips for me. At least not unarmed, anyway.

If you ever do feel tempted to tip toe thru the tulips, keep this song in mind to set you straight.

I went barefoot all the time when I was young. My feet were tough. Was doing wheelies on one of those Honda 3 wheeler bare foot and broke my big toe two times. Now its got a big calcium deposit and my big toe doesnt bend. Also crushed the middle of my foot when I crashed a dirt bike.

I cant go barefoot anymore , unless on soft carpet or smooth grass. My feet real sensitive now, kinda numb for probably 25+ years. Little pieces of sand or tiny rocks or rough surfaces suck.
