Forbes Says Self-Reliant Homesteaders Are “Delusional” and “Mooching” Off “Civil Society”
Post Date: 2017-08-02 10:57:09 by Deckard
By Daisy Luther Its always interesting reading when someone smug and sanctimonious writes a clueless diatribe about another group of people being smug and sanctimonious. So when I saw that an economist for Moodys and Forbes had written an op-ed calling self-reliant homesteaders delusional, I knew Id be in for some misinformed hilarity. The article, entitled, Dear Homesteaders, Self-Reliance Is a Delusion was published a couple of days ago on the Forbes website. Youll be forewarned that the article wont be deep in the first paragraph, when the author presents his claim to knowledge about self-reliant living comes from the fact that he is ...
This Story About A Vegetarian Woman's Death Match With A Rabid Raccoon Is Everything
Post Date: 2017-06-15 14:54:21 by Tooconservative
Maine's Bangor Daily News has graciously provided us all with what could prove to officially be the story of the week/month/year/infinity: the harrowing tale of a vegetarian Maine jogger's run-in with a rabid raccoon that started with a pleasant jaunt through the woods on a "beautiful day" and ended with a raccoon belly up in a puddle and a vegetarian haunted by the vision of what she once considered a "cute, cuddly forest animal" but now brings to mind something out of "Pet Sematary." The story begins with 21-year-old jogger and non-eater of meat Rachel Borch hitting the trail for a jog on a warm ...

Your Handy Guide to Camping in Forbidden Places

Under the stars and under the radarSome years ago, when I lived in Flagstaff, Arizona, I answered a knock on the door of my house to find my buddy Bryan and a fellow I'm almost willing to swear was the backwoods character Gabby Johnson from Blazing Saddles. It seemed they'd been cut off by a wildfire from their unauthorized long-term camp at the head of Sycamore Canyon. Did I have any gear to loan them so they could squat elsewhere in the forest?The two ended up living in one of my tents for a couple of months. Several of my friends have been known to throw down a sleeping bag under the radar, often in a place or at a time that violates various regulations. But Bryan, a sometimes ...

New Haven, CT DUI checkpoints are an unfortunate reality in the ostensible land of the free. Luckily, there are still people in this country who choose to assert their rights and challenge this tyrannical and constitutional-violating police state racket.

Man In Chimp Suit Goes Wild In Tokyo Zoo, Taken Down By Tranquilizer Dart (Video)
Post Date: 2017-02-24 22:17:57 by cranky
On Tuesday, a Japanese zoo conducted an interesting earthquake drill, which involved police and firefighters chasing after a man in a chimpanzee costume. This unique training exercise was held at the Tama Zoological Park in the city of Hino in Tokyo and was meant to simulate a situation in which a chimpanzee had escaped from its enclosure due to a major earthquake. About 100 people participated in the simulation and even though the "escaped chimpanzee" was only a man in a costume, all involved took their jobs very seriously. During the drill some of the participants could be seen evacuating park visitors, while others, armed with tranquilizer guns and nets, did their best to ...

Trump will win the popular vote by a landslide, and then the Electoral College will give it to Clinton, he told me as his wife, Nikki, drove us through the rolling mountains of northeast Tennessee.

Post Date: 2016-09-14 10:13:55 by Willie Green

I already had two of these very common minnow traps at home but I stumbled on to one at walmart that was cheap and thought "I bet that would work!" I set it along the wall inside of my coop and 2 days later had a rat snake in it, A couple days later a copperhead and then another, so I dug around till I found the two old traps and set them inside also and today I had two more copperheads, I knew I had snakes but didn't know it was this bad and am really loving the effectiveness of the Minnow/Snake traps, I figured if anyone else hadn't already thought this one up I'd share it and maybe it can help others save a few birds and eggs, Happy hunting and thanks for looking, ...

Moriah Ratner Scott Rigell (R-Va.) says he thinks Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson can win the presidency. "This may surprise you to hear, but I'm ready to defend the proposition that Gov. Johnson can win," Rigell said Wednesday on CNN.Rigell, who is retiring at the end of his term, announced earlier this month that he is backing Johnson and snubbing GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Rigell noted Wednesday that if Johnson can get enough support in polls to make the debate stage, it could set off a positive chain reaction for him."No one saw Trump winning the nomination, at least early on," he said.

7 Ways That People Died Trying To Become Immortal
Post Date: 2016-07-28 10:13:08 by Willie Green
Would you risk your life if you thought it might mean extending it? Would you die now if you thought you could be revived at some point in the future? Here are cases of people who went to extremes for immortality or their very own fountains of youth and killed themselves in the process. Contrary to legend, Juan Ponce de Leon didn't really die searching for the Fountain of Youth, but some people have perished in the quest for extended youth and immortality. These aren't people who died in hopes of achieving spiritual immortality in some afterlife, but people who hastened their deaths in the hopes of extending life on Earth. 1.

Wall Street Journal Editorial Page: Johnson/Weld Is an ‘Honorable Alternative’ to Trump/Clinton
Post Date: 2016-06-01 23:24:07 by hondo68
Mainstream media sympathy for the Libertarian Party ticket The lead editorial in today's Wall Street Journal is headlined "The Libertarian Alternative: An option for the many Never Trump, Never Clinton voters." After throwing cold water on "the mooted third-party campaign from within the GOP," the Journal makes its case: The Libertarians will offer a policy alternative to both candidates on free trade, and perhaps on taxes if Mr. Trump doesn't clarify his position on taxing the rich. They'll also contrast with the Republican on immigration. Mr. Johnson could help himself by reassuring voters that he isn't one of those libertarians who thinks the only ...
A Better Choice for 2016 (Johnson, McAfee, Petersen)
Post Date: 2016-03-31 19:06:40 by hondo68
The Libertarian Party is selecting a nominee too. Trump! Clinton! Is that all there is? No. Fortunately, we have other choices. A recent poll shows that if the election were held today, 11 percent of Americans would vote for a Libertarian, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. That's surprising, since last election Johnson got just 1 percent of the vote. This year, he's doing better, probably because Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hold the highest percentage of "unfavorable" reactions from voters in more than 30 years. I assume the Libertarian total will go higher, since most poll respondents had no opinion about Johnson. They probably don't know who he is. They ...
DESTINY AND POWER: The American Whitewash of George Herbert Walker Bush
Post Date: 2015-12-23 10:04:28 by Deckard
John Meachams biography of our 41st President George H.W. Bush, DESTINY AND POWER comes in at a whopping 864 pages and a wrist snapping 3.4 pounds and its pure whitewash. It ignores inconvenient historical facts because it is an authorized biography. Meacham seems oblivious that the goofy, patrician manner and weird syntaxes that makes him look like a bumbler hide a man of steely ambition, ruthlessness, entitlement and duplicity. Fortunately, my own book Jeb and the Bush Crime Family will be released Jan 26th and will expose what a tool of the power elite Historian Meachem is and there is a whole genre of books that are authorized profiles ...

Jindal packs it in & turns out the light
Post Date: 2015-11-17 18:23:04 by Willie Green
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) is ending his presidential bid. In an interview on Fox News on Tuesday, Jindal announced that he is suspending his campaign for president. "Ive come to the realization that this is not my time," Jindal told Fox News host Brett Baier. Jindal says that once his term is up, he will go to work at a think tank, crafting conservative policy solutions to major issues. Once a rising star in the party, Jindal has failed to gain traction in the polls. A recent poll of Louisiana voters showed Jindal losing to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in his own state, with Clinton gaining 45 percent of likely voters to Jindal 's 42% support.
