I think that is mostly Republicans who have been told to vote for Bernie so Trump will have an easier candidate to run against. But I think it's going to backfire spectacularly for them when Bernie wins the Presidency instead of Biden. Because when has Trump ever had anything work out the way he thought it would? The Republicans fervently believe their own propaganda, and that includes being sure Trump is going to win in 2020.

But what with the stock market tanking, and spectacular mishandling of the Covid fiasco, I think it's a pretty sure thing Trump is going to lose in a landslide. Going along with Trump's fantasies to "own the libs" is fine when things are good, but when your family is under threat and your 401K is in the toilet, it's time to take off the rose-colored glasses.

Don't sound all that lucky to me...kinda sad the way I see it. Like somebody that don't like cheese, or vegetables...so many flavors and varieties, so many ways to serve them and enjoy them.

Not drinking alcohol often and coffee almost never, is no great loss for me. Just don't like the taste, and never have. But I LOVE chocolate. I used to buy the giant Trader Joe's Semisweet bars and eat the whole thing in a few days. Can't handle even a little bit of chocolate now. I get burning reflux for 24 hours if I eat any. That sucks. But I do love cheeses, vegetables, meats, fish, seafood, etc. Even lots of sushi. Crayfish? Yummie! Gator? Tasty. Never tried rattlesnake but I have eaten frog legs.

I shot a 6 footer in the front yard once and filleted him out, soaked him in buttermilk overnight and fried him up. Not too surprisingly it tasted like chicken.

>Rattlesnake and chicken

Well, they are both related to dinosaurs. The frog legs tasted like chicken too until I polished of a dozen. Then they started to taste like dead frogs. I was a bit surprised the alligator tasted a lot like beef. I thought it would taste more like chicken. I've read you have to be careful with reptiles because they can carry salmonella, but so can chicken or any other poultry.

You know what's amazing is abalone. I caught 4 when my dive class dove to the bottom of the Pacific kelp forest and they were incredible. But cleaning them was one of the most disgusting experiences of my life. The smell was so bad I couldn't eat it that day. The next day I made a clam sauce with the abalone and ate it over fettuccine. OMG!

Had it been eating your chickens - maybe that explains it?

What does a snake say when it eats a chicken? “Hmmm...tastes like mouse.”

Snakes don't bother the chickens much but some of them really love eggs.

Scallops are pretty disgusting to clean too. There's a lot more guts than meat in the shell.

Frog legs are good but sometimes you get one that's really nasty so I stopped ordering them. The smell of 'em is nothing to write home about either. Gator is mostly just tough, like conch it needs to be pounded to be edible. Opossums and armadillo are pretty good too, unlike a lot of wild game neither of those is gamey tasting.
