"Greyfoot, so sorry that I just abandoned you on chat. My next door neighbor knocked on my door to tell me that my cat is begging for food there. I feed her every morning and night and she always has a bowl of dry food to nibble on. …"
"In reply to both your below message and this one, I was imprecise about the school lunches (though I do still think that the health orthodoxy in this culture now is just as detrimental to the human condition in a free society as eating junk food)--I…"
"Well, I meant forced, through legislation, such as mandating certain foods in our schools. That's left wing Democrat legislation. And let's be honest, most left wing liberals (who aren't atheists--but hell, even some who are) defend…"
"But you could say the same thing about the far Left. Extreme Socialism and Communism can only work under a totalitarian mechanism. Right now, they're telling people what they should and shouldn't eat, and seek to censor criticism of…"

Greyfoot, so sorry that I just abandoned you on chat. My next door neighbor knocked on my door to tell me that my cat is begging for food there. I feed her every morning and night and she always has a bowl of dry food to nibble on. Something is up? Maybe worms??? Anyway, looked for you but you were gone. Message me anytime you want to chat it up. It was enjoyable.
