I’ve heard that repeated by liberals so often I am sure it’s true. :shock:

I have heard that too, but how would they know that? Do they actually know how many illegals there are or do they play the numbers to skew the results?

Just like Hillary lost the election due to Russian interference and a cosmic alignment! It had nothing to do with her lies, an owe it to me attitude, and a caustic personality. What the hell – she almost slept her way to the top! Swamp

Since virtually every illegal in this country broke the law (when they entered the country illegally) it can’t be true. It’s just a meme repeated so often that people accept it.

Water • Re: Spill Containment Trays – help!

September 16, 2017 anita 0

I use the under-the-bed blanket plastic containers for holding anything I worry might spill, and I use boot trays for some things as well.

There are also the trays that go under washing machines, but they aren’t that big.

Also, for puppies, I use piece of a rubber shower liner. They sell it at Home Depot and I think it comes in a four or six foot width. You just tell them the length you want, they cut it, and done. No lip, but I put it under the big playpen thing that can attach to the crate, and it gives a nice-sized area for the puppy. It’s food/water/newspaper can all go in there, and you can just roll it up when you don’t need it.

I agree about having the container with a spigot on it at the sink. I also have one in every bathroom when the power is out. Great for hand-washing, or getting a glass of water. I fill them whenever I expect the power to go out. The ones I have hold about a gallon.

I have several little O2Cool battery-powered fans. They are great when there’s no Power or A/C. The batteries last forever and just that bit of air movement is helpful.

Yes, let’s hear them.

I’ll add one from Sandy. This was pre-generator. I have a solar Goal Zero deep-cell battery that I had charged prior to the storm. I could hook it to the router in the evening and run WI-FI throughout the house, and we could use our computers. It was a real lifeline.

I was able to take the battery/laptops to the office and recharge during the day so that they were fully charged at night. If I had had to rely on the solar charging, I wouldn’t have been able to run everything every night. I’ve also been able to run the fan for the fireplace insert with the battery. Those things have been a good investment.

General Food Topics • Re: Storing food in a basement

September 13, 2017 anita 0

Thanks for posting. I’m in the process of moving, and the house I’m buying has a partially finished basement with a high humidity level.

Here’s what has been suggested to me/I’m doing to relieve the problem. (Keeping the water away from the outside of the house goes a long way to relieve inside moisture problems. I realize you said you have a dry basement, but can’t hurt.)

1) Have the immediate exterior (3 or so feet closest to house) regraded to make sure water runs away from the house, rather than toward it when it rains. Keep mulch back from the house by a foot or two. (this helps with insect/termite/carpenter ants etc as well as getting rid of the moisture retaining mulch near the house)

2) Make sure downspouts have extensions, either above or below grade, that carry the water away from the house, rather than just dumping onto the ground beside the house.

3) Window wells should be covered.

4) As others mentioned, concrete is good at wicking, so keep everything off the floor. I will probably end up having the carpeting that is currently down there removed, as it smells musty at the moment (it didn’t earlier in the summer) Yet another thing I was not planning on doing, but such is the situation of buying a different house.)

5) Run dehumidifier, large capacity, and it will go via hose into the sump hole (even though the basement has a high humidity level, the sump pump supposedly never runs) That way it will run as much as necessary, rather than waiting to be dumped.

6) I’m having a duct put in from the heating/ac system into the finished part of the basement. I have to have some heating system changes made anyway, so this will be added to that.

I don’t know if any of those suggestions will help you, but maybe they will help someone.

I’m farther north in central fl about 30 miles inland. Mandatory evacuations for mobile and modular homes. Going into work it appeared compliance was an issue. In my area we are expecting significant impact. Winds of 110 mph and flooding from a river. I’m far from the river and not expecting flooding. I am expecting a lot of tree damage but I have removed all the ones close to the house over the years. We’ll be on the right side of the storm so hopefully I won’t have to deal with a tornado. My employer thinks we may be able to reopen for business Monday afternoon :) I’m thinking I’m not going to make it in. There’s no way they will have the roads cleared etc by then. Travel is usually very restricted after these types of events. So long as the house is not damaged (I do not expect issues) I’ll be fine but it sure is not pleasant waiting these storms out.

And I saw a video of a guy headed out to surf!

This Disney thing annoys me because I am a (small) shareholder. These people are putting the company employees at risk and wasting Disney company money so they don’t have to stock up, suffer the traffic, the gas lines etc. I have absolutely no doubt that Disney has many hurricane precautions/preparations. But using it as your hurricane shelter, making their employees take care of you instead of their own homes and families, is a bit much.

They made the choice to stay in harms’ way and let someone else take care of them. They could have decided to go to Williamsburg, or someplace else out of the path of the storm, but no, they’d rather be someone else’s responsibility.

He’s in a one-bedroom apartment and there’s not a lot of room to store stuff, so these are a good option. They arrived today so he’s ready for the next one (we hope Houston has met their quota on horrible hurricanes while he’s there.)

Just saw the latest track for Irma. It is starting to track more straight rather than curve north. That would put it somewhere between Cuba and the southern tip of Florida, and possibly on toward Texas/Louisiana. If it continues on that track, it will be mostly over warm water with little land to slow it down.

The Weather Channel’s current prediction is that it will hit Florida and make a hard right up through that state. This is not looking good.

Public School Teachers Behind Violent Antifa Group

http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/01/publi … ifa-group/

A little off-topic…

Far-left propaganda is being taught in our schools, and not just by nitwits like this woman.

We sent our kids to private school to get away from this. Since our older two are 10 and 12 years older than the youngest, I have a first-hand multi-generational view of schools and how they’ve changed. When our older two were at the private school, the teachers were mostly on the liberal end of the spectrum, but not blatantly so. Often the kids weren’t sure of the teacher’s politics. (I bought one of my son’s teachers a book of Reagan quotes for a gift once, and he told me he had voted both ways but voted for Obama. (!) We had no clue, because he made kids think, didn’t try to force his opinions on them.

The Bible was taught in the school even though it didn’t have a religious affiliation. It was taught in English, part of a well-rounded education.

In the last two or three years, almost every speaker is concerning race, white privilege, or some such. Many of the teachers hired are blatantly gay/whatever. Virtually all are liberal, and mostly extremely liberal. One teacher has started a club for transexuals. Another for feminists. This year’s summer reading book was I AM JAZZ.

Almost all books read deal have some sort of race/gender issues bent, and most are depressing. Most of this change has taken place in the last two to three years, after the gay headmaster took over.

Their main priority has moved from providing a strong education to indoctrination.

I went to diversity meetings over the last two years to ask where the independence of thought was (the first part of their mission statement.) They just stared at me when I brought it up. What a novel idea!

This is happening all over the country, and not just in liberal bastions of Berkeley and San Francisco.

If my son hadn’t graduated last year, it would have been his last year there regardless. The good thing, if there is one, is that he had to learn to support his conservative beliefs. He was often the only conservative in a class. When he graduated, one of the comments teachers made about him was that he always supported his politics. Not sure they thought it was a good thing. He definitely has a strong conservative core though.

If I had it to do over, I would definitely have home-schooled him.

Now on to 4 years of college!

But Molly, if they needed this war (not saying they don’t didn’t they need it last year or the year before? How about 2008 or 2009–didn’t we need it then?

My point is that I doubt he can hit everywhere and everything at once. And, if that’s the case, then our troops in Europe or floating around at sea, or the British, French (and good grief, I hope we don’t have to rely on the French) etc, are going to take him and his minions out.

But Molly, if they needed this war (not saying they don’t didn’t they need it last year or the year before? How about 2008 or 2009–didn’t we need it then?

My point is that I doubt he can hit everywhere and everything at once. And, if that’s the case, then our troops in Europe or floating around at sea, or the British, French (and good grief, I hope we don’t have to rely on the French) etc, are going to take him and his minions out. They aren’t just going to be bystanders.

And all of Europe, along with our troops there, just sit there watching TV? And I didn’t see our nuclear subs or warships mentioned. They, apparently, are just floating around letting things go to rubble.

There are any number of ways things could play out if NK is foolish enough to try something (and don’t forget that their rockets aren’t exactly precise. They could go off far afield of their intended targets.) This is just one far-fetched scenario.
