When did Zed become less literate. “Who don’t…”??? Maybe the DD has degraded his vocabulary. I expect Travis to respond as such, but Zed?
“doesn’t” is too big for the balloon.
Texas will do that to ya.
Colloquialism is not the same as illiteracy, and is the lexicon of choice in the South; who don’t know that about our friends at the Ranch? 🙂
Like me gittin’ called ‘hunny’ and ‘sweethart’ both stops outside San Antone this am. It didn’t mean anything… although it did cross my mind : )
Mia being so formal – calling Zed “Father”
She’s recently undergone some radical changes in her life. Texas is a long way from her former existence and heartaches. Takes some gettin’ used to. It’s all good though. We’ll all know for sure she’s finally felling secure in her now safe world and home when she stars calling him “dad”
But, you know, there’s a very real difference.
Somewhat of a Nature/Nurture thing.
He fathered her: he is her Father…her heart, her brain, and her every gene, are part of him, the building blocks of her existence, for better or worse; mostly better I would think.
But he did not raise her: he is not her Dad…he did not impart his life, his lessons, his learnings, his leanings, to her and for her, for better or worse; mostly worse I would think.
But she did okay. She survived. She probably has developed life skills of her own based on the nurture she did receive. And now look at the opportunity for her going forward, with most of her life still to be nurtured.
I am not in a mood to give up Ny part of mine. Build a wall and charge cash for everything.
The InterStates mostly by pass the urban cores, the airports are in the surround as are most of the rail yards. Businesses and entertainment venues are moving out. Already, there is little reason to venture down into the zone of desolation. The urban cores are the leftover of 19th Century technology and current Democratic grift. There is no reason for those urban cores except as a hunting ground for Demorat hustlers and their dependents. Anywhere else is better and safer.
Except that the Walmart in a first ring suburb of Minneapolis is closing down due to crime and demorat control of the above and city it’s in
Hence the fence and the gubbmint “gibs me dat” stores inside. The shops near the commuter rail stations are already at risk.
I was told that the last two Walmart’s in Portland, Oregon are finally bring closed. Crime and no relief is getting the natural result.
This is the government the enemies want, if only until they consolidate and enact total control.
The Sci-fit’s of the last century predicted this pretty accurately
A bit older n’ that:
“A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves against those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” … Roman statesman and political theorist Marcus Tullius Cicero
And yet, Brutus.
Those urban cores are nothing but Vote Farms. There only purpose.
Yep. There’s a wide river between the core and me.
I am not in a mood to give up Ny part of mine. Build a wall and charge cash for everything that they need.
Except in California and like places where cartels lay waste and control the land, with push back finally happening. Grow houses and regular planting. Permanent teams now in place to eradicate new grows.

San Bernadino County discussed.
In a like note, the lawless Los Angeles has had code inspectors wiping the old time residents from outer Los Angeles County.
Zed is too optimistic.
Must be the effect of all the “tin men” (metal persons) that he has been living with. Banana Split, indeed!
Need more days at the pond.
I anticipate that trade agreements will quickly develop between the blue and red zones regardless of how the split occurs. There’ll be thousands of Mason Dixon lines separating urban zones from free zones. Incursions by raiding savages from the urban areas accustomed to free everything will need to be dealt with in a swift and brutal manner til they get the message.
Whole new industries will be created.
The real sticking point will be what steps those who are powerful under the status quo will take to keep their power, and how soon they run out of cannon fodder willing to risk life and limb to do their bidding. The biggest danger will be from those who say if they can’t have nice things, nobody will, and try to burn it all down.
“Thousands of Mason-Dixon lines”…
Reprinted for truth and accuracy.
Been saying it; it’s both a physical and philosophical separation, and it ain’t a North/South thing no more.
Bottom part of your comment is a good description and warning of early-stage CRA too. It won’t be easy, and it won’t be long
Regarding Father/Dad differences. Both of my daughters (and they are my daughters) call me Dad; their bio-father is ‘Father” to them. They both are pushing 50. Says a lot right there…to say nothing of warming the old heart cockles. Thank you for that.
I have GOT to get one or two of them suppressor thingees.
Truth meets Fiction … or vice versa:
There’s A lot truth there cb…. Remember that place called Waco, the FBI and the BATF don’t have a problem with murdering innocent men, women and children by burning them to death.
But thugs like BLM and Antifa are left to roam the streets with impunity….. You know I’m looking forward to the next revolution, I’m too old to participate but ill be clapping and cheering as ( Enemies Domestic ) are dragged kicking and screaming to the rope.
You’re never too old for point defense.
“Remember that place called Waco” … Mr. Trump probably picked Waco for Saturday’s rally with that in mind, as a reminder.
You can always reload…stock up on the makin’s now.
The split will never survive the coming Chinese attempted take over. Lefties must be defeated deftly and swiftly. The world won’t sit by while we duke it out like the last late unpleasantness. The U S A’s landmass and population of potential slaves is too attractive to Marxist nations that are running out of both.
Kurt Schlicter’s book series about Kelly Turnbull are a fabulous & entertaining romp deep into such a divided USA. I highly recommend them.
I’ve already prepped to declare my 19.5 acres as an independent nation of Baconistan if VA goes to the Blue side…
Alliance and trade with Gunpowder and any other such Free Folk will be welcomed.
If you don’t have land, bring your RV, skills, and weapons and there’s a place for you in Baconistan…
Be well! Be Free!
Careful with those invitations there David…
Let’s see…a 20 year old 30′ Cl A motorhome with Onan, bought new 4/2003 and isn’t the old lady’s thing so never been north of No. Carolina so just 17K miles…Our friends Kafiroon and NotYet here have been onboard and can further attest to the third requirement. As to the second, well I spent a bunch of years trading that third requirement hardware and most forms of hard currency, so that might come in handy; used to could shoot pretty decent at open-range distance, not sure now but I am getting cataract surgery next week so that and with a good brace to help the old shoulder…I might be an asset!
Anyway, if you see me and my poor old Coachmen MH rolling in the gate, don’t shoot! Hope all your spaces ain’t taken up by then!
Well, the surgery was easy. I had to learn to shoot with my left eye. Then the surgery, then the left could see much better and l actually got good again. Then I got the right eye fixed and had to learn to use the dominant right again. Now I just use the old shotgun and don’t try for little holes. You can feel free to join us on the hurricane-free spot of the West coast and park the RV on the street with the rest of us. Does Red Tide bother you?
Thanks for the good reference on the cataracts, doing my right first and doing it for distance, have to keep the readers for closeup since my ins covers 100% of that and I didn’t want to spring for $2500 extra per eye for the blended short/long range version that they call “cosmetic”, how stupid is that?
Thanks for the invite but if I hunker down it won’t be in The Fla, got a half-underground place in No. Ga. but that Va place of sounds pretty good!
In the meantime, no, red tide doesn’t bother me 100mi. away in Sebring, but if it makes its way to the east coast again and trickles its way down to Mar A Lago ville, (just passed there a few days ago, still gorgeous blue surf right now), DJT will get it fixed. 🙂
Yep. On the Right eye, I went for distance, on the Left, it is still mostly distance but I can get away with some reading. Then I use 1.75 readers for most reading. No blended ‘cosmetic’ lenses; no need for that. Anyone looking at cataract surgery should consider the two slightly different lenses as it works fine.
Can’t have a banana split without crushed nuts and there’s no shortage of ones that need crushing…most of them say they don’t want them anyway, it can be a ‘transitional split
I kinda feel for Mia. Having come out of one war zone losing her hubby and child, but when things started to look much better, she’s seeing signs of war brewing again…
Perspective or is Mia much smaller than Sam and the other Owens girls? Not that it’s a problem… I’m a fan of shorties…
Well that does mean that she is experienced with splits and the wars that create them, so she might have to woman up!
Speaking of her depiction there, I am trying to figure out that first panel head/face…?
Oh, and it’s “shawtie”, eh?
That took me a bit to figgerout too. The accidental (I guess?) blonde “face” on the right side of the hair is just part of the hair apparently, and the actual flesh-colored profile face looking up at Zed (the little black curl by the hairline is the eye) is hard to see since the black mouth seems to be a sort of earing on an illusionary front-facing face (and even that illusionary front-looking face is hard to see. Tricky to make oneself “see” the proper orientation once the false one is engraved into your mind…
Well, unless Chris has decided to introduce a Roman “genius” or maybe spirit-demon possession into Mia’s character, and the title “Banana Split” is intended to refer to both and be essentially “split” itself between the punchline and Mia’s character. And bananas ARE yellow like Mia’s hair, so there is that… 🙂
Wayne M, I think it must be comic height — comic time and comic height are good friends, I hear…
That is probably it, Stanley.
Mia sounds a lot like this Ukrainian refugee girl who recently resettled in San Francisco and who now yearns to go back to war torn Ukraine where it is … safer.
Meanwhile … the banana split reference reminded me of that fun 60’s era kids’ show, whose characters had more seriousness, integrity and higher IQs than most of the current crop of nuts in Washington, D.C.
But they can’t leave innocence alone can they?
Had to turn the Splits into homicidal maniacs…
90 paid-for acres- – – – -on a dead end gravel road- – – – -20 miles to the nearest cluster of houses that calls itself a town, and 50 miles to the closest blue city. We also have plenty of firepower and equipment that can dig deep holes and fill them in again. The worms might get fat and well fed before we dig them up for catfish bait if the city dwelling scum decide to come for a visit!
Liking that “equipment” addition to the shtf stash…

*More colloquialism there CuriousB… 😀
Thinking ‘off grid’? Tesla Powerwall might be worth looking into. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1638381090368012289
Pretty good replies, and non-replies-, even under the needling style of that pompout brit twit Morgan…
The problem with a split is that if you leave the socialists one square mile of American land to call their own, they will use it as a foothold and base from which to take over the whole country again. I don’t want to cede an inch of American soil that has been bled for by generations of patriots. Instead, the solution is to scourge leftists and their enabling parasites from America with fire. The sooner the better.
A bit of history:
