What do you say to others when they misrepresent what you said?
Oh.. that's right you call for an apology and call them names.
If you can find where I mentioned washing a strainer let me know. Until then, you are your usual lying sack of ****.
I will also give parados high marks in being able to argue well, but that does not at all measure his honesty or intelligence,
It's funny that you should question the honesty of others in the same post you lie about what I said. Ironic, isn't it okie.
I am going to follow up on this, because parados credibility is at stake here. He has called me a liar, so I am not going to give him a pass.
Here is the post quoted below that I was referring to, which occurred when this discussion was beginning on the Obama thread. I was speaking from memory, and so although you did not mention "washing the strainer," you said something about pouring a pail of milk through a strainer. I am not at all far off, parados, so you get no apologies from me at all. In fact, you should be the guy apologizing. I would also point out that feeding the cows, locking them in stantions, washing their teats, putting on straps, and all of that is not the same as "milking the cows" as you claimed. Here is parados quote:
I never said I milked them alone.
Milking involves many things: feeding the cows, locking them in their stanchions, washing their teats, putting the straps on them to hold the milker, putting on the machines, checking to see if the machine is ready to come off, removing the machine, pouring the milk from the machine into a pail, pouring the pail through the strainer into the bulk tank.
There are many parts that a 7 year old is capable of doing and some he can't.
I would suggest to you that washing an airplane is not the same as flying an airplane, nor is putting gas in a car the same as driving a car. Nor is filling a paint bucket the same as painting a house. I wonder parados, if you pulled the mower out of the garage for your dad to mow the lawn when you were 5 years old, would you have said you mowed the lawn at age 5?
P.S. When I was a kid, if somebody "milked cows," that almost always meant actually physically milking a cow with their hands instead of a machine. Later as machines took over, I remember the neighbor kid had to go "do the milking." He generally did not say he had to go "milk the cows." That may be splitting semantic hairs, but I think the language did change when the milkers came into common usage. I will say though that if you actually did everything necessary with the milking machines all by yourself at the age of 7, or if you had said you "helped with milking the cows" or "helped do the milking," that would have been more plausable and almost believable, parados, but when you said you milked the cows twice a day from age 7 to 16, I think that is more than a stretch. Just so parados does not accuse me of lying again about "7 to 16," he did say "about 16" Here was what parados originally claimed: "I milked cows twice a day from the age of 7 to about 16. I planted corn, wheat and baled hay. Which of those did you do on the farm you grew up on?"
