That is what we are buying. 56 cents per square yard. We will be closing next month. Our vision is to set up an aquaponics and permaculture "seed farm" where anyone who wants to become self sufficient will be invited to do a "learn-turn-ship."
You come learn, then it is your turn, and when enough of us learn we can turn this ship...
There are a couple of things I want to post about, the first is a chip in address. (Mods: If this is a no-no, mea culpa and please just delete it...)
I do not expect anyone to contribute anything, but if someone is so moved, I am trying to learn to accept help from those who wish to offer it. I am one of those who somehow learned that gifts and charity are things I am supposed to do, I have never been good at having them done to me... that proves I am too weak to stand on my own, right? Anyway... We are literally trying to save the world, it seemed a project worthy of a chip in so I set one up.
The next is a very serious offer... I want you to imagine me putting on my little sweater, changing into my tennis shoes, and singing... "Won't you please, won't you please, PLEASE won't you be my neighbor?" The lot next to the one we are buying is also for sale. 11 acres of "dry pasture land" that is prime for permaculture techniques. If you are interested, please contact me and I will get you the details.
Well, it was kind of a rough week for me, with the lawsuit and all. I've been doing a lot of reading & research, and I want to thank everyone here from the bottom of my heart for all of your help and support.
I talked to a lot of people this last week, including some of the other defendants. I've read every one of Steve Green's articles at the Las Vegas Sun on the topic. He's got something new practically every day. The latest is an informative article on the arguments Internet Brands is making to get their suit dismissed: Copyright misuse, Unclean hands, Barratry, and Champerty. (Any of those ring a bell to you?) IB is very well funded, so this case is worth watching: Defendant accuses Righthaven of misusing legal system.
Last week was the information collection phase. Next week I'll be interviewing several lawyers. I've still yet to be served (that should be fun when/if it happens).
I don't want news of the lawsuit to overwhelm the site, but I have set up a separate forum for information on the topic, because this is an existential threat both to the Daily Paul, and the Internet as we know it, and has interesting First Amendment implications as well.
In the meantime, I would like to wish everyone a fabulous Labor Day holiday. Hope you are lucky enough to get the day off and enjoy it. After an exceedingly hot July and August - Soylent Green Hot! - suddenly this morning the nip of autumn was in the air, a subtle reminder that all things, eventually, must pass.
Thank you all again, and I'll keep you posted!
BAGHDAD – Days after the U.S. officially ended combat operations and touted Iraq's ability to defend itself, American troops found themselves battling heavily armed militants assaulting an Iraqi military headquarters in the center of Baghdad on Sunday. The fighting killed 12 people and wounded dozens.

Rand Paul "wins 37% of the African-American vote, a surprisingly high number for a Republican candidate."
The race card backfired.
I am reluctant to post a tease but the article is a good read, so click on the link.
Rand is starting to pull away.
I just spent the weekend with a well connected Democratic Party member and was told that Conway is done. His fundraising is next to nil. And nobody likes the guy. He likened him to a spoiled brat.
He predicted a double digit win.
Sometimes I guess it isn’t such a bad thing to be left out of a debate or two if the result is front page news coverage In today’s Sunday edition of the Express-Times newspaper with the headline “Some Debates Exclude Jake Towne,” reporter Lynn Olanoff covers my being left out of a debate sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley and also the 5% poll minimum the Morning Call decided to set. The campaign was contacted for the first time by the Jewish Federation on a matter unrelated to the debate on Friday, so I hope to possibly attend or at the very least be of service to the group by answering any of their questions.
Below is a segment of the Express-Times article, the remainder can be read here, the updated debate schedule, an interview done with Comcast, and upcoming events. Supporters are more than welcome to march in the Pen Argyl Labor Day Parade tomorrow!!

Independent congressional candidate Jake Towne isn’t being excluded from all debates as his Republican opponent originally wanted, but he is being kept out of one and possibly two candidates’ forums.
For you still making your weekend plans, Ron Paul and John Dennis will be in San Francisco for the Principles over Parties Rally.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal’s copyright infringement lawsuit partner on Friday sued U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle over R-J material posted on her website, allegedly without authorization.
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas by Righthaven LLC, seeks damages of $150,000 against Angle personally and forfeiture of her website domain name sharronangle.com.
The Democratic Party of Nevada, which has also been sued by Righthaven, charged in an Aug. 23 press release that the Review-Journal had a double standard to “hold Angle harmless while suing the Democratic Party and progressive organizations.”
