These folks have a really interesting selection of heirloom vegetables, peppers, tomatoes....and tropical fruit. ^-^   

http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/

I got a bunch of seeds from them, including cold tolerant papayas and Burmese blue bananas, an old diploid strain that's supposed to have edible fruit.

Oh, and they have seeds for solanum uporo, the cannibal's tomato. 8)

PS all plants mentioned above have actually germinated and are growing.  Still waiting on the neem and cardamon.

Thanks rbrgs, I will have to see if anything they offer will grow in this god forsaken, frozen hellhole (I mean, the backyard).  I have saved the site.

I'll be writing about this in depth, but for now I will say that in Texas, we reached out to the "patriots" to help us defend land that was being stolen from Americans by a Canadian corporation.  They didn't come.  Even when Mike Bishop, a Marine Vet, was working with us to keep his land, the so called patriots did nothing. 

Now, I'm not saying they could or should be everywhere.  But they condemned us and looked the other way because they couldn't agree with our climate change talking points.  They basically abandoned their principals so they wouldn't have to stand with "lefties."

Right now, I'm talking to lefties about solidarity with those who defended Bundy.  Even though we don't agree with him on everything, we do agree that the state is bullshit and so are their violent tactics.

What we need is solidarity.  Solidarity doesn't mean unity. It doesn't mean we compromise who we are to be allies.  It means we stand together against the greater evil, and hopefully build working relationships that can bear fruit in the long run. 

As to these people being branded terrorists, welcome to the club.

Well said, as usual Dig.  We are all terrorists in the eyes of the powerful (pretty damn sad thing).  Solidarity has worked and it still works.

Govts aren't there to "help our industry" any more.

We are all wholly owned subsidiaries of USA inc and this is called Transfer Pricing - it's a common accounting practice - look it up

You are entirely correct.  Governments aren't intended to help anyone but themselves and the well off - that is the whole point of government.  I apologize for the usa (not that I am entirely responsible, but I do live their - for now).   :-[

That does sound plausible, although other countries might be variously caught up in the fallout (awful pun given the circumstances). For example, China's debt holdings would probably take a big hit. Maybe the Chinese have a strategy in place for addressing that scenario. It would make sense for them to have planned for the scenario such of a dollar devaluation.

Jim Rickards (If I recall) made the comment recently that China isn't buying gold to become a new 'reserve' currency, but rather as a hedge against their dollar bond holdings - as the USD devalues, gold will rise, so they won't really be losing any purchasing power (plus if they sell the bonds slowly to buy the gold, it reduces their USD holdings).

Could something like this result in global thermonuclear war?  Could one of these incidents result in a grave mistake?  Retribution for something that came, not from an enemy but from the Kuiper belt?  The danger is magnified (by our sapience) beyond the probability of a city killer or an Earth killer.  The incidence could precipitate a "chain reaction" of events, so to speak.  I hope not.

When I saw "Bundy", I thought this thread was going to be about "Married with Children".

I was worried Ted had come back to life.   :o

The F-35 is a classic example of "scope creep", trying to make a jet that does everything - which is does, but does them all fairly average/poorly, rather than making several different planes that each specialize in one thing.

... I'm actually surprised they didn't plan on giving it helicopter blades too, and pontoons for sea landings, and...   ::)

All that to say "divide and conquer". Same $h!¥, different millenia.  ;)

Yep!  Same shite, different millenia.  It never ends, until - shite, it never does end.
