I wasnt going to moment on this thread. Or even click on it to give it any validity.

But now I see I must place my opinion on here.


Lol! You do realize that when

Lol! You do realize that when you post a comment it actually bumps it. Now...was that really worth posting your 2 cents?

*sarcastic laugh* At least 23

At least 23 people want the same thing.

Well it's a good thing we all

Well it's a good thing we all have differing opinions otherwise this place would be BORING.

HOLY COW! Where Is?????

You must've read my mind!
Thanks for posting this.
Truly the Daily Paul IS a "Family", of which "Granger" is a part, and a BIG Part of.
And like most families, according to John Bradshaw, it is dysfunctional from time-to-time, as evidenced by the negative votes.

Somewhere around 85% of all families ARE dysfunctional:
"FROM TIME-TO-TIME"...yes, that's a fact Jack.
NOT "all the time", just occasionally.......so.....

Enough of the hatred...Let us wish Granger well.

Welcome back Granger,

It's good to see your words again.



:D Seek and ye shall find. Seek good and good it be.

Good to see your kind welcome (((((NOSHEEPLE)))))

Thank you.

Grange! Honey my honey my honey my sweet

clap my hands and stomp my feet!

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.



(((((((Michael & Mods)))))))

I have been busy doing good things, prepping the gardens, caring for the land, chickens, my community.

I have designed a plan for the Noyo Headlands that I have proposed to Koch Industries(the owners of the property), The city and county, various non-profits and foundations.

The plan is to covert what was Union Lumber Company/ Georgia Pacific Headlands into a green industry, reclaiming the waste water treatment for an algee farm for abalone food and fuel, next to a Water Theatre, a desalination plant that has a theatre for music events, and an abalone nursery to repopulate the red abalone, dungess crab, rock fish and salmon populations. This is all connected to the College of the Redwoods, that is closing, to convert to a trade school to supply certifed workers for the green industry. I'm being told that it "inspirational", and it seems to be making many people happy.


The Grange has started an agriculture school at Sea Bisquit's Ranch, and we are taking applications to house students and teach them permaculture techniques. http://www.petalumagrange.com/new-california-grange-school-o...

I'm working on making a long stay in Israel, probably won't happen until next year, with my husband, whose Aunt Sophie Simon Loeb wrote the book "Palestine Awake: The Rebirth of a Nation". Facinating read with pictures of the swamps and all the industry American Jews were investing is a sparecly populated area. Arabs flooded into the area looking for work the American money was providing, and still does (GO Scarlet Johanson). Sophie Loeb has kind things to say about her meeting with the Grand Mufti and other dignitaries of her time. circa 1926. Some may know of her by the statue fountain in Central Park New York http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/loeb-sophie-irene-simon


I'm hoping to re-establish a foundation for the care of her fountain, and excuses to go to New York. I LOVE New York.

Also check out Patriot Nurse videos from 1 month to 3 weeks ago and see how Israel has been surviving SHTF for decades: http://www.youtube.com/user/ThePatriotNurse

I resigned as treasurer of the Mendocino County Republican Central Committee. It's a developing story and I'm happy to no longer be treasurer, though I did learn a lot about politics as business, and I think anyone who is serious about politics absolutely needs to study what being a treasurer is, because it spans, non-profit (SOS/County)/ for profit (taxed FEC), and you see the layers, and come to understand why most politicians speak out of both sides of their mouths (It's the nature of the business, and that's all politics is.. BUSINESS). I am supporting Rand Paul (and anyone who supports Israel).

The American people are being lied to by the UN Agenda (Communist Islamic block) it is a global war and it's effects are being distorted by the press (Snowden/Greenwald included), and it will come here. People say "Oh you can't bash Israel without being called anti-semite". Yes you can. People bash Israel all day long here. It makes me sad, because they don't KNOW the TRUE history. What you can't talk about is Islam. All you have to do is look at Syria to see the Communist-Islamic block in action. Communist kill through abortion, homosexual union, unsustainable birthrate. Islam produces children so the chances of surviving global population purge, that both are planning, will give them the winning edge. The USA is completely blocked, and if you do searches on the subject, your computer goes to a crawl, the mouse moves as if someone is reading your hard drive.

I don't believe in living in fear, but I also respect the fact that DP is not my property and so I have stopped posting about it and giving those who want to believe the UN Agenda bull about "bad" Israel againt "Palestine" the freedom to lie (Palestine is the ROMAN STATE: interesting those against statist are pro-Palestine. Palestine was and is JUDEA and SUMARIA. That is their TRUE NAMES, before the Roman state, the one that gives us the untrue Calendar we live by).

So.. (((((((Unknownuser))))))) Thank you for thinking about me, because I too think of you, and many here ((((Michael)))) who I LOVE profoundly and miss very much. I am thriving and hope that you too my friend, are constantly and abundantly blessed during these exciting times we share. Shalom

And here I thought you were on your honeymoon.with expectations of
of an update....such as,I just flew in from out of town,and man,my arms are tired :)
Burst my bubble...working

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence


Honeymoon. What a romantic idea!

If you eat more beans you may be able to spare your arms and rather gas you way in and out of town. ;D

Hi. Wait.... you're married? Is this a new development? You are doing so many things, it's crazy! Are you fasting this year? Just a few days ago I was thinking that last year at this time I was fasting with you. Not so much this year though.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That'll teach you to keep your mouth shut. Hemingway

Hey (((((jammin righteously daily 3820)))))

Yes, I married 11/12/13. If you see that "Outstanding Israel" tube, my husband looks like that red dread in the last few seconds. He's a musician, and now you know why I don't do the nightly jam session.. ;D

Yes, I will be fasting this year.. if course everyone is already asking me over to eat choppino and crab cakes and drink wine and beers.. and that's what real friends are for eh? To torture you. LOL.. The fast does not begin until March 05 (right after I jump in the lake and go fly a kite).

((((((jrd)))))) Much Loving kindness to you!!

thanks for the vids, I support all of your permaculture ways

regardless of our differences of opinions about theurgical intervention on government, we can atleast find common ground in the soil.

So, on your journey and with your school I think it would be a clever addition to add myco-logical methods to your eco-design. In my experience, mycology is the supreme immunity networks that are the reason why fertility becomes closed loop in soil in order for us to grow what can grow itself.

cheers for liberty and journey well. I Hope Israel Spreads Permaculture to Ethiopia and everlasting peace can come to the world.. I'll pray for you.

..not sure if you have seen this,


if you haven't already seen it.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Well fungi

I'm reaping oyster and shiitake now, but I also have chantrell, bolets and prince (the best shroom of all) And if I was a day tripper, there's plenty of liberty caps.. I wonder is that why cows are sacred in some cultures?

Shrooms grow all over this area.. you'll find many expert books sorced from here.. matter of fact, my neighbor is a neice to Miriam Rice: http://www.sonic.net/dbeebee/web_mush-history.htm

Where I voluteer today is a redwood loom built by the Finnish community from over 100 years ago.. everything was dyed with fungi, including house paint.. the Masonic hall in Mendocino City's paint is well over 150 years old and the paint looks as fresh as the day it was applied.

Peace be with you.

Very happy to hear from you Granger!

Sounds like you're making great progress, enjoying your life, and working toward meaningful goals. And with all of that, you've reached escape velocity from the Daily Paul!

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you.

Hey, I just found this quote on another site, and wanted to post it on the DP, and here seems to be an appropriate place:

"Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling." --Margaret Lee Runbeck

Blessings to you on your travels. As always and of course, feel free to stop by any time.

You are one of the great teachers here at the DP, one who teaches by action, undaunted by fear, and with a heart of gold.

Blessings and love.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. - Alan Watts


I believe it won't be long before I can write a really funny book about the GOP.

Censure Preibus!!!!

((((Love to you and Sam))))))

So glad to hear you are doing

So glad to hear you are doing well. Sounds like you are doing a lot of positive things! I am sorry about all these comments. I never meant it to turn into a bash Fest. Just keep doing what you are doing and stay positive. There will always be people who will try to bring you down. Don't let them. Just be who you are and know that you are loved. Thanks Granger for all you contribute. Stay healthy my friend.


Yes.. I'm happy to report that I am doing well.. need to go pick up a irradecent beaded ring I won at a silent auction before I go volunteer today (which includes my "take a poor soul to lunch" program LOL. Since I stopped working the soup kitchen, which closed when I left, they want me to reopen, but I'm worn out after years of feeding the homeless. I now take a struggling person out for a nice lunch at a fancy restaruant. Today, I'm treating a person to lunch at The Cliff House http://fortbraggcliffhouse.com/ I think it's good for moral and self esteeme). I placed a bid on on the ring because it reminded me of bigmikedude's wife's beaded earrings. Maybe one day he will offer them up again. I hope so.

Thank Goodness there is a place where bash fests can thrive. The dark is attracted to light, and the light must shine for the dark to exist. Tao. Why do you think so many who live in darkness are attracted to ((((DP)))? Because (((DP))) touts LOVE, PEACE and GOLD.

Shalom, Ani Ohev et, Zahav!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I believe downvotes should be required to post. So many reciptients of downvotes beg to reason: "Why the downvote?" It's a fair question, especially when one is only left to assume there is reason, and not just bigotry, prejudice, spite, vengence, "democratic" jihad as the motivator, eh?

Hey.. BTW.. I'm PROUD of you for your ways of being a Mother, and I believe whatever your son decides to do, he will make you far more proud than you ever dreamed. Must be good genetics ;D Blessing to you and your kin.

Wanna here something weird. I

Wanna here something weird. I had a dream about you last night. Only you were a 40 year old hippy man. You came over to my house. But my house was from my childhood. It was weird.

I agree

And what's also weird ((((U)))) is I have what are called "Dead Dreams". It's even refered to in a song by the Grateful Dead, "Box of Rain".

I love that song..

Dead dreams are these dreams you can't will, maybe you could but I think it would be living in a perpetual seperate reality, which won't help you much among the living, AKA reality (debate what is normal).

A dead dream is you go to this place of Splintered Sunlight with places that are familiar like childhoom homes, and places you experienced by associating with the Dead, like Terrapin Sration, and you meet souls, good souls, grateful souls, loving kind beautiful souls, who impart inner wisdom, or truths, (which 40 year old hippy man is an icon for a type of wisdom.. or in New Age: http://www.dawnofthenewage.com/pleiadians-and-their-messsage/

(it's interesting until the end, where they get into examples by celebrity.. and then it's like the gig is up, but still many people buy the whole box (of rain if you will).. it has nothing to do with race, but that discription of the love freqency".. it's that vibe is where Dead dreams feel like.. so there, I impart the soul of a 40 year old hippy visting your childhood memories of what a 40 year old hippy man was like. I'm sure I have been a 40 year old hippy man in that seperate reality.

Even Susan B. Anthony said she could see a Granger as far as she could see her, as the Granger carried herself as well as a man. Least we forget Joan d'Arc. http://www.history.com/news/7-things-you-didnt-know-about-jo...

Wow, wow, wow

you are the energizer bunny, I'm worn out just reading all the stuff you have been doing, happy to hear you are well.

I am very dumb when it comes to the Middle East and I hope they can work out their problems and wish them all well.

The wonderful Ron Pauli Girl pillow you made for me continues to ride with me everywhere I go. I LOVE that pillow, and I LOVE my Liberty Tree flag hanging on my wall with Michael's artwork and some great flyers, Tuma 'toons and things from "Those were the days".

Love to ((((You)))), All ways. Hope you enjoyed the vids.. they do most the work.

I like the granger too.

Really? When I check on the


When I check on the DP, I usually click on the top thread just because it's the place the little parenthetical number tells me the most folks are dwelling at the moment.

Sometimes it's a fascinating read, sometimes not.

Rarely -- actually I think never for me -- is it some love lorn plea to a particular poster.

I don't get it. I've been here a couple years and post/respond in spurts. I don't remember any of your screen names. I couldn't tell who is who. I just read what folks say and respond to content.

This sort of thing is junior high school. And jr. high girl at that.

Be ashamed. I am for even bothering to lift the spanking paddle.

Why leave such smug comments?

Why leave such smug comments? I was trying to find a friend. Thanks for the bump though. It's just enough to keep this post alive and maybe my friend will find her way back.

what i'd like to know

is what happened to d.ducks. i always enjoyed his intelligence, sense of humor and knowledge on various topics. i hope he is doing well.
