foodie furs / Re: Ice Cream Sundaes
« Last post by Kobuk on Today at 08:07:13 pm »
I pretty much like everything in the poll except for caramel and butterscotch toppings, and chopped nuts. I also pretty much stick to only chocolate, vanillia, or strawberry ice cream. Mint or mint chocolate chip might be ok, but I very rarely ever have it.

Trump day 302
Today marks a year since I started this thread. To point out what our
friendly or unfriendly politicans. It depends on who you are. If you have
a job that pays enough to have a decent lifestyle? You might feel the GOP
and Trump are doing ok. If your poor and working two jobs to make ends
meet it's not likely your are happy with how things are.

Now the GOP and Trump want to give the super rich a huge tax cut on
the backs of the working poor and middle class. If you voted for them,
you likely were coned  into believing they cared about you. The GOP
and Trump are out to protect their pocket book not yours. .

The GOP talks about how much they want to reduce welfare, but turn
around and give the rich and big corporations welfare with big tax cuts.
Small businesses rarely ever get this kind of welfare. They don't have
enough money to  buy tax cuts  like the super rich does.

Trump and the GOP clame the economy needs these tax cuts to grow
and make jobs. Well unemployment is at record lows, The stockmarket
is at record highs. Big buisness has record amounts of money in their
coffers. The economy has been growing for the past 8 plus years.  All
this and they still clame we must cut taxes to help big busiess and
the economy.  Their TAX CUTS are about making the super rich
happy. People who have spent millions and millions of dollars to get
them  elected. One billionaire has spent almost 90 million to get
the GOP and Trump elected.

The religious right is supporting the GOP and Trump, even with their
immorality. Why?  Because they say they must get rid of abortion and
homosexuality. Not to help the poor and disadvantaged as the Christian
religion teaches.  Their  leadership says we must get rid of abortion and
homosexuality or the country will die. Well it's more about the power
and money their leaders want. They are using their followers for this
purpose.

Most won't likely want to believe they are being used. Some of their
followers have killed doctors and women thinking they must  protect
the unborn. Others  refuse to give homosexuals the proper respect
they deserve, thinking GOD wants them to oppose those who don't
follow their beliefs.  This leads to divisions across  the country. A favorite
tactic of authoritarians like Trump.

We can only hope for the good of all Americans and the country,
the majority of Americans will stand up and hold the GOP and Trump
accountable.  If they don't  many people will suffer, and may lead
to violence in the future.

The Great depressian of the 1930's almost turned the country
to communism, or socialism FDR pulled the country away from
such extremes by giving aid to those who needed it the most.
The GOP was against giving aid to the poor even then, and would
return us to the days with people begging and dispaire that could
drive us to being a socialist state.

The GOP believes in putting people in prison, even when their
ideas drive some people to crime. We already have more people
than any other country behind bars. It's time we change our
ways of dealing with people. Or we will be building more and
more prisons. With it costing close to  $50,000 a year to keep
people in prison. Just more state welfare in reality. Why not spend
that money to train and educate people out of criminal activiey?
That would likely do a lot to grow the economy, instead of pulling i
t down..


After a year of this and vision failing I don't plan to continue my
daily posts on politics. Instead I will post perhaps weekly or when
there is something big to report on. Thanks for reading.

traditional and digital artwork / Der Meister tries art...
« Last post by Der Meister on Today at 09:23:41 am »
So here's my art thread! I hope to post here every time I upload something new. It won't necessarily always be furry related.

The only reason I really do this is to get critique, so critique welcome!!

My guide to critiquing my art can be found at https://doctorlugubrious.deviantart.com/journal/My-guide-to-art-critique-714125374
I recommend reading it through to see what I want, but you don't have to.

The first drawing I've posted is this one:
https://www.deviantart.com/art/Insect-Blueprint-715682848
I didn't do any shading or color or stuff (it is just a blueprint) but I'd love critique on the line technique or shape or design or whatever.

foodie furs / Re: Home made bread. From traditional to no knead refrigerator.
« Last post by cause the rat on November 17, 2017, 11:03:33 pm »
Pulled a second loaf out of the freezer.  The first unthawed loaf was Amish. This loaf is a Shaker recipe. I'll let you know if there is any degradation in the taste or texture of this loaf.

I keep kicking around the idea of trying that no kneed refrigerator bread again. This time let it sit for a week before baking. Hopefully it'll get past that funky overcooked pop corn smell the last loaf had. Ok you caught me. I really do like kicking a dead horse.

Here's Chandelure! I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Trust me, the paper version looks better than the scanned one. I also think the shading on this one is a lot better than on my previous drawings, which is always a good thing. I know there's still a lot of room for improvement, don't worry. But I liked working on this one because I pushed myself less hard to make it look good and I just tried to have fun making it. Of course I still did my best!

Oh yeah, some colours are not found on normal Chandelures, but I thought it looked a bit more interesting this way. It's intentional.

The bread that came out of the freezer.
The only difference was the crust was a bit stiffer. The bread itself, texture and flavor is just as good. I first wrapped the loaf in cling wrap. Then in aluminum foil.

news forum / Re: Trump the GOP and Democrats. A new path or more of the same.

Trump day 301
The Trump administration has removed the restriction against bringing
back parts of elephant to the USA. The Trump administration claims
it will provide more money to protect large game animals from pooching.
I suppose we should ignore the fact Trumps family is involved as many
rich people are in big game hunting and obviously want to bring home
Trophies to show off to their friends.

Trump tweeted to bad mouth the senator from Minnisota for his
actions of Kissing and groping a woman. Even to suggest the
senator did more than accused. Likely to create conspiracies
against the democrat. Trump should keep his mouth shut after
20 women accused him of similar or worse attacks during his
campaign. As it says in the Christian bible. "Let those who are
without sin cast the first stone." Perhaps our higly religious vice
president should remind Trump of that.

Our politicians like to claim they are as pure as the driven
snow, but I have a hunch there are many cases of sexual attacks
and harassment with both parties in government. It's been a dirty
little secret of many powerful men down through human history.

Seems people who support men who attack women, want to blame
the women or girls for being seductive. To make the man they support
a victim instead.

The keystone pipe line sprung a leak spilling of over200,000
gallons of tar sand oil. This pipe line was said to be almost
leak proof. Nebraska is about to  vote to permit the same pipe
line to cross their state. I wonder if the big leak will
affect their vote? Somehow I think a GOP controlled state
won't even care and will allow it to cross leaks and all.

Trumps son was was found to be in contact with Wikileaks
during the campaign. A site that was involved with Russia. This
pretty much ties The Trump campaign with Russia and it's help
to elect Trump as president.

Puerto Rico is still having power problems, at least 50
percent of the island. After 9 weeks they are still
getting shameful help from the Trump administration even
though Trump claims they are getting great help.

The house passed a tax cut bill with GOP cheers.
A bill that would if put into law would save the
super rich billions. Troub would save millions, and
with the removal of the estate tax his family depending
on how long Trump lives could save billions as well.
All this while the taxes increase for the working poor.
The GOP has often said they are for jobs, but their
"Trickle down economics" hasn't ever worked except
to make the rich even richer, and the rest of us poorer.
They don't believe in the Minimum wage, or Unions. They
claim all government aid creates dependency, and should
be eliminated. They say let local government care for the
disadvantage. Well local governments often don't have the
resources to fill the need.


I think we should work to help people get off government
aid, but when the minimum wage pays less than people get
on welfare. We need to have a system that moves people
to an equal and even greater income. The way it is now if
a person gets even a part time job they are tossed off
welfare. Perhaps we should just reduce welfare by the
amount they earn working. Until their income equals
welfare.  Then stop the aid. We will always have people
that try to live off of others, but I think most want to
make their own living given the chance.
