Due to the health of my son, we, as a family, will have to move to a more colder, less asthma triggering climate.
The goal is to find out, based on eyes and experience on the ground, from you, which one of the following states would be the most acceptable in terms of population, land values, local population mentality, and how common are the busy bodies in your area. We all really like to be left alone by the busy bodies.
Short list of the state that we, as a family, were trying to pick from are as follows:
Hey there everyone!
This is my first post on the DP. I've been reading and visiting this site for well over a year now and recently decided to join to get in on the discussions. The community is great :)
To business. I am a junior in high school and, as I'm sure you well know, all of these colleges and federal aid offers are being thrown everywhere. Being the Ron Paul guy I am, whenever I hear anything about "federal student aid" I usually ignore it. That's another issue, though.
In my list of decisions I've mentally made for myself for my life after high school, one of my options I'm considering is something called a "gap year." For those who don't know what that is, it's essentially taking a year off before college and either deferring your start until a later date or applying exactly a year after high school ends.
Wolves were once a great enemy to humans but now they are ancestors to our best friends. Pigs used to be ferocious wild hogs but humans domesticated the animals by herding and selectively breeding the animals until the species were more manageable.
People throw around the word "sheeple" often here, and with MSM lies, fluoride in water, indoctrinating schools, tyrannical Governments, and even more tyrannical shadow governments I can see that these "sheeple" are real.
I'm out of town on business. I forgot my laptop at home. Help me not die of boredom. Can you recommend a good non-fiction movie or documentary or YouTube video? I do have NetFlix too! HELLLLLLLPPP!! I'll have to watch on my phone. There's this glass box looking thing on the wall talking non-sense to me! There's people in this glass box thing trying to make me believe things I know are false. Need input. Major input.
Over the weekend I walked my neighborhood to get my petition to be on the ballot signed so I had to knock on many people's doors and get this:
On my street alone, this is in the City of Dallas...okay, pretty urban, largely metropolitan types of people... Normal mid-60s homes, okay....well, my street alone has 6 different families (including ours) that have:
1) above ground gardens
2) have/(want) free range chickens
3) are committed to growing seasonal items we can all share
4) totally all-organic
5) two families have BEES, they have honey bees! (so cool.)
I was thinking that we could maybe get one step ahead of these Neo Cons who want to have these drones everywhere, by having our representatives put together a bill that would create a NO FLY ZONE for drones over American soil?? Specifically for drones and or any other unmanned vehicle. Maybe we could get this idea to go viral? We can continue to fight the battle in courts and in congress regarding not having drones at all in America, but at the same time we could be one step ahead if they end up winning that fight. Let me know your thoughts below.
Anybody going to the YAL convention in DFW (Arlington) this weekend, March 2nd?
Please note: at 10:45 am Rand is going to Skype into the convention. Jack Hunter is speaking, Ken Emanuelson, and others...

Ok this has to do with using different currency for business.
Wouldn't it be smarter to use Silver Eagle Dollars for business than paper money?
A Silver Eagle Dollar is worth about 28 dollars right now. But if you use is at the store they will only accept is as 1.00 dollar.
So her is my example:
You have a business and you do business cards. You charge 250.00 Dollars for you service. You take a picture organize the slogan and business logo, bada bing, bada boom 250.00 US dollars each time. Lets say you do 300 clients a year and get taxed at 25percent.
Whatever happened to Rand's son who got arrested from "harassing" a flight attendant on a plane?
(the media claimed he was drunk and assaulted a flight attendant, yet failed to mention the flight was at 10am in the morning....)
Any news to report?
What do you make of the Alternative Vote?
I think it's much better than the current winner take all approach.
Thanks to CGPGrey (video's author) who helped break it down for me.
I have been spreading Ron Paul's warning and preaching his message anywhere, and soon run across people with lots of stock in the stock market. It seems to me like when the crash comes that will crash too. My recommendations over stock would be:
- putting my savings in a money market fund..less risk during a downturn?
- hanging tight on a very broad range of mostly middle of the road, medium growth mutual funds
- getting it out and putting it in Swiss Francs.
How conniving will a candidate for local office be?
War stories, anecdotes and personal tales welcome.
It needs to happen, but how do we convince him?
Fishy and Mark are remarkable people, willing to reach out and teach others.
Most of us are unwilling to tackle projects that we know nothing about. It takes determination to learn about the subject and resourcefulness to succeed.
We should ALL be planning our path to food independence and survival in poor economic conditions.
The hour is late--what will you do to prepare?
What will it take to motivate you to get started?
