    May 6, 2019 | 08:13 5 They look like they are about 15-16 year olds and this is probably their entertainment. Our kids were at the farm building go carts, dune buggies, rail sailers, starting yard maintenance companies at the lake, hatching wild fowl. To do these things, you gotta have parents. That’s the long and short of it. I can imagine the environment these punks in the picture grew up in. Our friend taught in inner city school and said, if it weren’t for gramma, some of these kids have no ‘parents’ at all. Its hard for us to understand that life can be so rough for some but it is.

  • May 6, 2019 | 08:55 6 NEWS - HARLEY DAVIDSON SPEAKS TO DECLINING BIKE SALES
    The reasons for the slump in sales at HD are not President Trump's fault.

    Apparently the Baby-Boomers all have motorcycles. Generation X is only buying a few, and the next generation isn't buying any at all.

    A recent study was done to find out why Millennials don't ride motorcycles:


    1. Pants won't pull up far enough for them to straddle the seat.

    2. Can't get their phone to their ear with a helmet on.

    3. Can't use 2 hands to eat while driving.

    4. They don't get a trophy and a recognition plaque just for buying one.

    5. Don't have enough muscle to hold the bike up when stopped.

    6. Might have a bug hit them in the face and then they would need emergency care.

    7. Motorcycles don't have air conditioning.

    8. They can't afford one because they spent 12 years in college trying to get a degree in Humanities, Social Studies or Gender Studies for which no jobs are available.

    9. They are allergic to fresh air.

    10. Their pajamas get caught on the exhaust pipes.

    11. They might get their hands dirty checking the oil.

    12. The handle bars have buttons and levers and cannot be controlled by touch-screen.

    13. You have to shift manually and use something called a clutch.

    14. It's too hard to take selfies while riding.

    15. They don't come with training wheels like their bicycles did.

    16. Motorcycles don't have power steering or power brakes.

    17. Their nose ring interferes with the face shield.

    18. They would have to use leg muscle to back up.

    19. When they stop, a light breeze might blow exhaust in their face.

    20. It could rain on them and expose them to non-soft water.

    21. It might scare their therapy dog, and then the dog would need therapy.

    22. Can't get the motorcycle down the basement stairs of their parent's home. Reply With Quote

    Glad you identified one of the root causes of the problem. Lots of social problems caused when the parents and grandparents were taken away and were sent off to residential school as youngsters.

    Can you imagine the pain experienced by the parents and children if you or or your kids were stolen and forced to go to school in another culture and language and were told that their language and culture was wrong and had no value? Not only that many of them were physically assaulted and sexually abused. It is a disgraceful part of our Canadian history that has left a legacy that we are still dealing with today.

    Yup that's what we did that screwed up several generations of first nations and we wonder why so many first nations people have problems? Reply With Quote

    This chuck chuck is nothing but a cut and paste bullshit artist. He knows NOTHING of these issues. If he and others are so concerned then donate all your white privilege time money and land to your nearest cause. The leaders of these groups are mostly corrupt and will keep fueling hate and never allow their people the chance to get ahead. The amount of money and programs offered by our government's over the years should have anyone involved set right up. The only ones benefitting seems to be the top political operators in their circle. It will never end. You could give the entire country up and along with all the cash on hand and it wouldnt matter because the average guy wouldn't see any of it. How many generations are going to blame their grandparents poor or inexcusable treatment as a reason for their behaviour. I'm sick and tired of it. I raised my family right! If you think that everyone didnt see bad shit growing up or have issues, you better wake up. It's easy to take, it's hard to earn it, but when you earn what you've got instead of blaming all the time it feels good! Reply With Quote

    keep up the good work guys this chuck guys needs a attitude adjustment 👍👍 Reply With Quote
    May 7, 2019 | 09:24 16 No one is saying these kids or any kids should not be held accountable for their actions or crimes.

    Some of you guys need to have a little more understanding and empathy for the underlying causes of crime and social problems.

    Completely disregarding the legacy of the residential school disaster and all the mistreatment first nations have received is typical of the racist, bigoted attitudes often found on this site.

    Some of you guys are an embarrassment to Agriville and fellow farm families with your redneck, yahoo, racist comments. You are starting to make Alabama look progressive. Reply With Quote
    farmaholic's Avatar May 7, 2019 | 09:53 17 Chuck, but there comes a time....

    Their own community needs to start denouncing this stuff. We all know their treatment wasnt good but things are in place to help them up....if they choose to take advantage of them.

    People can change. Cycles need to be broken and it has to start somewhere.

    Staying mired in the past won't help.

    Many many many races and people were persecuted and mistreated...time to move on.

    I almost see what happened as a conquering of First Nations people AROUND THE GLOBE. In Canada, Europeans that would be considered "Industrialized" in comparison to the "stone aged" North Americans of the time came and took over. Two vastly different cultures and societies.

    How much different would things be in North America if Europeans never showed up "only" 200 years ago?
    And would the First Nations today want to turn back the clock to that time or stay modern. Reply With Quote

You proved once again poeple like you are the problem not admitting the problem and typical liberal thinking blaming us as racist. A lot of these poeple do not take care of there children. When do they take responsibility? I could get lots of actual facts of what goes on these reservations but poeple like you blame it on racism. And how does these pertain to the joke I put on here? You have no humor in life do you . Reply With Quote

    Not large from what I've read. In the whole of Canada somewhere around 125,000 by 1867 but the population was already in decline by then. Over a million more than that now so despite all the problems they have there has been a population explosion. Whether that has any relevance in addressing current concerns I don't know.

    Just good to see that the community got together and caught some thieves that were terrorizing the local rural community.
    Who they are don’t matter , that fact they got caught is the point 👍, and got stopped terrorizing the local innocent rural folk . Reply With Quote

  • May 7, 2019 | 11:20 22 And chuck , unless you can prove those kids parents or grandparents were actually in residential schools, that excuse is just that , an excuse to blame society. That’s getting very old already.
    Not saying the residential schools did not effect people negatively but not every single person was in one either so you could be partly right but to instantly assume and blame other issues is wrong as well . Reply With Quote

  • May 7, 2019 | 15:43 24 Similar situation here with stolen generation and ensuing issues.

    But back when it happened some indigenous tribes were deemed to remote etc etc and left to there own devices sadly they to have same problems.

    Communities that is some way have gone back to "traditional ways" in some way shape of form seem to be getting ahead and with vast expanses of land who are grazing cattle as a rigydige enterprise with no govt money other than start up are going ok plus some mines have huge indigenous work force.

    Chucks comment at the time was correct must have been traumatic but how many generations before that cant be used as a excuse.

    Grass hit interesting point re population im quite sure its the same here indigenous population has exploded.

    I read a book at airports and planes whilst in canada called "firewater" and its affect of booze on natives exact same thing here. A postive some remote communites are dry and have basically always been that way the island communities that can only be reached by boat they have few problems.

    Its booze ice domestic violence that comes with it sexual abuse and boredom.

    But like you guys who can it be fixed???

    I was local football coach for 2 years on uder 13s and we have about 8 out of the 20 indigenous kids playing loved each and every one of them, i remember one guy distinctly he wanted to be a lawyer for aboriginal rights and i dont wanna be like every one else,no grog, his parent were rough as he used to come to footy with cigarette burns on his arm inflicted by parents. I tried to report it but to no avail.

    Anyway this kid who i thought was gonna turn out ok he went to school etc etc well he was in jail by the time he was 19 for selling drugs sad, whos fault no idea. Reply With Quote
    May 8, 2019 | 14:00 25 We’ve had a lot of problems and have busted quite a few thieves with the neighbors in the past few years. They end up being a “mixed” bag of trash although most of the stolen vehicles do end up on the reserve just north of us.

    A cousin of my wife’s used to steal cars for $hits and giggles as a teenager till he got busted. Obviously something good happened out of that as he’s now married with two kids and as nice of person you could meet.

    Sooner or later YOU need to accept responsibility for YOUR actions. Reply With Quote

  • May 11, 2019 | 08:14 26 The best thing to do is to lock up teenagers up for 10 -20 years with lots of other angry misbehavers, addicts and repeat criminals. Make sure they do some hard time and maybe a little solitary so that when they come out they have all the skills and attitude to be happy and successful after they missed the last 20 years of their life.
