    DNF,

    Whatever "true stories" you think you have, I assure you they are skewed significantly.

    Please read this.

    http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...hlight=Warning

    Feel free to read posts 8 and 9 especially.

    You have misled me DNF. I was under the impression you were going to change some behaviors on this POTUS board.

    The ball is in your court. Please tell me how you want to handle this.

    Please, let's just have you be accountable for your behaviors Doc. Don't worry about anyone else's conduct but your own. That's all I'm asking you to be accountable for.

    Is that fair?

    That poor victim who told you the true story...he had lots and lots of line fed out. He had many opportunities to use the resource right. He showed himself to be incapable of and unwilling to be accountable for his own actions.

    Your turn. Let's just agree on how it's going to be and then get on with life.

    Thanks, Chris

    I wouldn't feel at all bad about being snubbed by the British royal family. We fought two wars to get them off our backs in order to rid the populace of royal privilege.

    What irks me, somehow, we get sucked up in sending troops and treasure to combat turmoil in their former empire repeatedly.

    The type of behavior referred to in those posts has NOT recurred from me. I cannot control others, nor do I give a hoot to. If my reference to another's comment was out of line, fine, I accept responsibility for that and will desist that type of comment. But I have not misled you, and still wondering what the comment about aliases was about? I have not, and will not use aliases. If I have something to say, it will be said under the DNF777 banner. I owe you that. And in return, I don't expect to have inferences to aliases attached to my name.

    LIke I said, I will respect whatever decision you make. I would much rather chat with you on the dog fields than on the computer screen anyday, as friends. (as with anyone else here)

    Some may not be aware there is a red triangle icon at the left hand corner of every post. It is there to report abuse.

    LONDON DAILY TELEGRAPH - very astute!



    The American people can now more readily "understand" why the Obama's were omitted from the guest list to the Royal wedding in April! This is a very sobering article. Our handling of relationships with the Britons over the oil spill didn't help either.
    From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations
    Quote:
    "Let me be clear: I'm not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States . But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama's reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue."
    One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama's animosity toward Great Britain , presumably because of what he regards as its sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).
    One of Barack Hussein Obama's first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11. He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags.
    The president was "too tired" to grant the leader of America 's closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.
    Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen. Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as "rudeness personified." There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations in September. "The prime minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were rejected by the White House", said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr. Obama's "churlishness is unforgivable", Mr.. Hughes said.
    The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina 's specious claim to the Falkland Islands , a British dependency since 1833. The people who live in the Falklands, who speak English, want nothing to do with Argentina . When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by force, the British -- with strong support from President Ronald Reagan -- expelled them.
    "It is truly shocking that Barack Obama has decided to disregard our shared history," wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. "Does Britain 's friendship really mean so little to him?" One could ask, does the friendship of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?
    "I recently asked several senior administration officials, separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in office," wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, on Monday. "A lot of hemming and hawing ensued." One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret. Another named German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, "Merkel too has been conspicuously cool toward Obama."
    Mr. Obama certainly doesn't care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has betrayed on missile defense. Honduras and Israel also can attest that he's been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful friend. Ironically, our relations with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have never been worse. Russia has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama's abandonment of missile defense. Russia and China won't support serious sanctions on Iran. Syria's support for terrorism has not diminished despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has responded to our efforts at "engagement" by deepening its ties to North Korea .
    And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their contempt for him.
    For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is actually distrusted by its allies and not in the least feared by its adversaries. Nor is Mr. Obama now respected by the majority of Americans. Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama's relentless efforts to nationalize and socialize health care, Americans apparently have yet to notice his dismal performance and lack of respect in the world community. They soon will.
    -- London Daily Telegraph editor -- Alex Singleton

    Yes sir. In three days I probably saw easily over 400 birds. I couldn't guess how many our group saw. It was not uncommon to have 80 or so come in off the roost in the morning. They bust up during the day in to smaller groups and of course the hens ease off to lay. We had winds of 30-35 gusting to 50 Sunday and Monday. That made for funny strutting at times.
