Food and Cooking / Re: What's your favorite non-typical sandwich?

Thanks, Phaedrus for the bread recommendation, but we have no Costco close to us. :shrug:     We have Sam's Club in Sioux City, but the closest Costco is 90 miles away in Sioux Falls.  I did put the brand in my notes, though.....maybe I can find it somewhere else? :-\

I haven't had any bread for a couple of years because I'm trying to avoid carbs.  The 'keto' lifestyle has pretty much cut out ALL sandwiches for me, but I do miss an old-fashioned white bread sandwich that Mom used to pack in my Roy Rogers lunchbox (I still have it & the thermos bottle it came with) when I was in grade school. 

RECIPE:  2 slices of buttered Wonder Bread, 2 slices of bologna with 2 slices of VELVEETA Pasteurized Processed Cheese Food :lol: in the center of the sandwich. :drool:

I don't know if the Costco in your area has it but the one where I live has Zero Carb Keto Bread by Franz.  It's basically like your store brand white bread, not astonishing compared to the best breads but manna from heaven if you haven't had a sandwich in months!  It makes fantastic toast or grilled cheese as well. It really does have zero net carbs and doesn't seem to kick me out of ketosis.

I just had some yesterday with liverwurst! :D

Just curious if you have anything in the works, Crash!  It's been a while since you've debuted a new blade.   :D

I didn't start after anything.  I gave a time period to qualify my assertions.  In fact I believe I noted the Indian thing and called it ethnic cleansing.  Actually it was not ethnic cleansing, it was extermination, similar to the early 1940's Germany only much more open and brutal.

Regarding the legality of killing slaves.  (I will preface my remarks with my opinion that Chattel Slavery is one of the most abhorrent atrocities humans have visited on one another). While it was certainly done at times, I would have to research the legality of doing so.  I seem to recall that the murder or mistreatment of slaves was not entirely legal.  In addition to its questionable legality, it would have been extremely stupid to kill or injure a slave.  Slaves were owned to work.  If they were killed or injured, they could not work.  They were also extremely valuable. 

And the truth of the matter of slavery is that the bulk of human History, in nearly all cultures, slavery has existed.  We, as humans have only recently, the blink of an eye in our written History, abandoned Chattel Slavery as an institution.

 
"Perhaps it is better phrased this way "In the last 150 years the us prefers to start wars overseas, or mingle in overseas civil wars"....?"

Perhaps it's not better.  At great expense and loss of American lives, The US pulled Europe's fat out of the fire, twice.  The first time when we were very much into isolationism and only reluctantly the second time because WE were attacked.

Oh, and I don't think there was any Mexican ethnic cleansing.  I lived much of my adult life in an area that was and still is about 98% Hispanic.  There was no Mexican ethnic cleansing.

wikipedia? really?  I'll pass.  I use wikipedia to look up when movie stars were born and died, not as a credible Historical resource. 

The reason I referred to the "whole of Europe" is because that is where the discussion was centered, not the only place the Wars were fought.... 

I cited my credentials, I guess I assumed that you would understand that I knew they were "World Wars"... but ass-u-me  got me again...

The last major conflict that the United States endured on our own soil ended in 1865, and aside from the "Indian Wars" (our last foray into ethnic cleansing) and some Bandit raids on the southern border, the concept of freedom in the US has not been marred or interrupted for over 150 years. The same cannot be said for the whole of Europe as two World Wars, an oppressive Communist regime and instances of ethnic cleansing have occurred in that same time period.  Although we (the US) was involved in some of that, and it certainly affected us, it did not happen in our back yards as it did in Europe.  So, my point is, that we are comparing different concepts of Freedom, one that has not endured the atrocities of war and murderous oppression and another that is only recently removed from that. 
That is a very narrow point of view.
Is it not convenient to start your timeframe after all the indian & mexican cleansing...?
What about slavery, is that worthy of mentioning, since it was sort of legal to kill slaves over nothing?

Perhaps it is better phrased this way "In the last 150 years the us prefers to start wars overseas, or mingle in overseas civil wars"....?
It's pretty common knowledge that oil control is a major reason for some of those latest wars :)
If you ever feel like catching up reading on where the US is busy, here is a simple link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_the_United_States

Or another way of looking it at is that people who so controlled (as you think Europeans are) would never start a war. But since there where 2 World Wars (not just in Europe as you wrote), it seems they are not so controlled and programmed as you claim. With this way of looking at it, it seems the US is more controlled since they claim to have no inland issue's.

Alan, although politics is crap, I like these discussions with you, even when we do not agree.


Moe, thank god for Alan, if he would not be posting, you would be so lost.

It's not hard for freedom loving people to run afoul of oppressive, tyrannical laws.....  (not to say that our current Liberal leaders aren't trying their dead level best to impose those types of laws on us).

I majored in History, taught History and have a Masters of Education. I was also the Textbook Coordinator for our school district.  Not that those things are anything special, but I've got a fair idea of what is in a lot of the History books, and I have had the opportunity to view how those History books have changed in their content and scope over the past +/- 100 years.  The revisionists seem to be winning one baby step at a time. 

I will admit that since my retirement I have let my reading lapse to almost nothing.  I can't say that I haven't enjoyed NOT having every conversation digress into a History lesson.

There is certainly not enough time, space or desire on my part to go through it all and cite my sources.  It's 5:00 AM here and I am supposed to be out in my shop deciding on my day's activities (at least until #1 wife changes my plans)

I too need to be doing something enjoyable.  Politics is hardly that....

 Excellent post Alan.

My information comes A the news, B dear friends living there since a couple of years and C colleagues with who we have weekly team conference calls.
Well Moe, more and more I start to lean towards what you wrote yourself:\
I can very well imagine that this all sounds like the tin hat ravings of a senile old man
You're idea on how Europe is being ruled, it's just funny. Feel free in believing yourself and not even listen to someone who actually lives there :-)
Good luck with blaming and naming everything and everyone else.

Alan, what happened to the rumors of running from the law..?  Or did you mean freedom from the law that those ancestors perhaps broke?

I'm done with this topic, it is way too political. I thought I would add some insights from this side of the ocean, but it is useless I noticed.
I'll stick with bushcrafty things again.
