PostNakia's Babblings

Hi y'all,

This will just be a rambling blog where I post up what ever is on my mind. Similar to a status report. You know "the weather is terrible". Whatever is on my mind...

OK, Y'all;

I will start my Blog as a new Topic, and anybody can post in it. But I need to do 2 or 3 things here at my house, so I am done with my local duties, and not have to worry about them. (Do the dishes, and pay a bill.)

Nice collection. Smile

This reminds me of this from Fallout 3:

I believe it is included in Fallout New Vegas but I have yet to see the model in the unmodded game.

I wonder how many people including residents of the USA know that homesteading was permissible in this country up until October 21, 1986. Only a little over 26 years ago. This was in Alaska. Homesteading on other Federal lands was allowed up until October 21, 1976 when the Homestead Act of 1862 was repealed. Because Alaska was a new state and had few settlers it was granted a ten year extension.

We are a young country, a young nation. My grandparents pioneered in Idaho. I had cousins who in the early forties went to Washington State and built their own homes with the help of neighbors. We are a nation that is at most two or three generations removed from being a frontier country.

I do not know what Canada is like. I know it has great tracts of wilderness. I have visited the Laurentian area and it is beautiful but what I saw as very settled. I understand that it is still possible to homestead in Canada.

Actually it is still possible to homestead in the USA. Federal land is not available but some states have limited land available. Interested in homesteading? Take a look at this article.

Hi Nakia, here in Texas, everybody gets a Homestead exemption on their main residence, it lowers the Property Taxes.

We used to have something similiar here in New Jersey but they took it away from us. If I recall correctly I think it was limited by income. Don't remember the details. I just got a kick out of getting a couple hundred dollars credit just for living here.

Skorp's recordings and comments on the story he is writing reminded me of one of my favorite words Berserker. The word is pronounced differently in the USA and in the UK.

Here are definitions of the word from the Urban Dictionary. Berserker

A food I really like and is good for you is Buckwheat. Buckwheat is not a grain, it is gluten free and is high in vegetable proteins. It is a fruit seed.
It is thought to have come originally from China but is mainly found in recipes from Russia, Japan and France.

Here is a link that contains more information and recipes.

Thanks Nakia;
I now have the Urban Dictionary Bookmarked, so I can find those trendy words I run across occasionally.

I am listening to this as I type Very Happy Ten hours of the Skyrim Main Theme

This is just a bunch of rambling as I try to get things clear in my mind. Someone said that it is natural to love one's own country and I got to thinking about that. Do I love The United States of America? My answer to myself was no. I take it for granted. It is were I was born and raised where my ancestors were born and raised some going back thousands of years most just since the founding of the colonies. Do I take pride in my country? Sometimes and sometimes I am ashamed of it. The government for example I agree with maybe half the time and disagree with it the half.

Do I love the people? No, not really but they are my people. Most of them I have never met and i never will. Brotherly is a spiritual love and pertains all people in all lands. I can be upset and saddened when I hear of catastrophes in other parts of the world. I can want to help people I don't know just as people I don't know have helped me.

Do I love the land? Yes, but the land is not the nation, the land of the USA flows into Canada and Mexico. The boundaries are artificial. I love the grandeur of the mountains in Alaska, the awesome expanse of the Mohave desert, the gentle rolling hills of the Midwest and the not so gentle and not at all rolling foot hills of the Smokes were I was born. I do think I feel something special about the land because it is my land. I do have a proprietary interest in my land.

I will defend it simply because in some sense it belongs to me, it is part of me and I am part of it. Attack my country and you attack me. Critize my Government? Go right ahead I do that all the time. Critize my people? Tread lightly there. We are human beings, we bleed when cut, cry when sorrowed, we are good and we are bad. We are many and we are varied.

Want to use statistics to prove something? Again tread lightly. Statistics are generalities and have a margin error. People also don't always check into the documents that go with statistics and have used statistics that are questionable to prove their opinion is correct. Sometimes the same statistics are used to prove different view points. I don't like statistics. If statistics are used to prove that 52% of the people eat broccoli and 48% don't with a + or_ error of 3 all that is proven is that there is a 50-50 split. So be wary when you use statistics.

That is all for the moment but my mind is still going.

My mind is a cauldron of constantly bubbling thoughts. One of the reasons my sleep pattern is so bad is my mind will wake me up at odd times with some particular thought. It did it just a short while ago a little after 3 AM. What was the blasted thing carrying on about but States Rights.

States' Rights is something I have tried to explain to people from other countries with no success at all. In fact they just ignore it. I don't even get a tiny nibble. The only thing I can figure is that it is so completely foreign to them that it passes through their mind like water through a sieve. I find this hard to understand especially for Europeans. The United Kingdom is composed of four nations, right? England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each of the countries has it own government and makes its own laws. There is a federal government (don't know the correct term) of course. I know that the United Kingdom is a Constitutional Monarchy. That is about all I know which is why I never participate in debates, discussions about British politics. I may follow with interest what others say but I certainly can't add anything to the topic.

Back to States' Rights. I am no political scientist, in fact politics didn't really interest me until I got on the Internet and discovered the weird things people think including my own countrymen. Then I started doing a lot of research and have learned a lot in the last ten years.

This bog is getting a bit long so I think I'll stop there for now. Maybe my mind will give it a rest but I doubt it.
