Driven — Get out of California.

Cast Iron – I grew purple sweet potatoes the last couple of years (in addition to Georgia Jets.) They aren’t nearly as sweet, and are mealier. The three or so plants I put in last year did produce, though. I will keep growing a couple, I suppose. I use them to make a quiche crust (got to use up all those eggs somehow) instead of flour, since I’m gluten free.

These are outside pipes? Why do you need to water your plants now? Are they in a greenhouse?

In case you don’t know – You should not leave a hose on an outside faucet in the winter.

If you let your water drip all night, it doesn’t freeze. Keeping a lightbulb on at night near the faucet helps, and if it is in a cabinet, you can leave the door below open.

If he would get off that damn twitter account things might not be so bad.

Ray, I thought I posted last night, but it didn’t show up. Hope this doesn’t come up twice.

Have you considered stealth gardening? Raspberries/blackberries along the treeline (they also act as a deterrent for trespassers :) ). Asparagus will reseed itself almost anywhere, it seems, once you have it going, and it is a long-lived perennial. You may be able to get some of that growing near the treeline as well. Strawberries as groundcover? A couple of apple trees in the landscaping. Bush cherries? (almost no pests for these). Blueberries are good too, but bird magnets. These are things few will recognize as food unless they see the ripe apples, etc. But it would give you some fresh fruits/vegetables. I’m sure there are others I’m not thinking of.

i have no problem with them means-testing SS, as long as they give me back all the money we put in. They can even keep the interest that they should have collected (but didn’t). Otherwise, it’s just one more redistribution of wealth. We’ve had enough of that.

I always remember the tax laws are made by and for the rich. That’s how they get, keep, and increase their wealth.

We were on the fringes of high income for quite a few years and the tax laws available to shelter income were unbelievable at that time even for us. And the more you made the better it got. That’s why people say oh the wealthy are paying 39% of their income in taxes, oh please, they are likely paying nothing and getting huge refunds or carryforwards. It makes a huge difference when all your w2 income is fully taxed and theirs is not.. No wonder they get and keep their wealth. Plus the tax planning people fix it so they can take advantage of all that.

I think we are in a world of hurt and even in the next 4 years will see the poor get poorer. I believe the wealthy he has selected are a power hungry bunch and will only line their pockets even more. Would be nice to believe they care about us, if that were true the people that work for them would be rich or very well off too. But once any of them get that high up its all about number 1 anyway, there may be a few exceptions but likely rare.

PS, Please share your tax strategies that allowed you to shelter income. We’d all like to do the same. My husband, as a small business owner, made significant income, and we experienced no such advantage in taxes. The only reason we got a refund is because he over-withheld because he didn’t want to get hit with penalties. (In other words, we got our own money back that we shouldn’t have paid in the first place.)

Also, please share the details on how you know what wealthy people are paying on their taxes. Are you their accountant??

I heard James O’Keefe interviewed on our local (Philly) talk radio station this morning, and he said they have video of these far-left groups discussing putting butyric acid into the ventilation system of the National Press Club, where the Deploriball is being held. They planned to set off the fire sprinklers somewhere.

Several of these people had tickets to the inauguration and balls, they planned to shut down the Metro, chain the trains to keep them from running, punch “nazis” in the throat (they are talking about the pro-Trump people, not themselves ironically), etc.

O’Keefe said the police/FBI told him that arrests were planned for a number of the thugs on these videos and their affiliates today.

Because the non disclosure stuff sounds exactly like tactics he has used before. He has been way out there on all the stuff he does, I can see him doing something like this. I don’t trust him anymore then any of them. He supposedly is making all kinds of plans, the repubs don’t have a clue what he is planning, he is going to need the people of his party to do anything, he is alienating way to many people. Maybe he has a lot of dirt on them and can make them vote his way.

Still no matter who does any destruction, I do not agree with that.

Okay, so your reasoning is that it has to be Trump because only he would use a non-disclosure agreement, because non-disclosure agreements are “way out there”? That will be news to all the many people who have had to sign these in the past. Perhaps they should hire you to represent them in court and explain why non-disclosures are so “out there”. (that is sarcasm)

This is the second story I’ve seen about this.

Liberals are catching the prepping bug.

We’re tired of being perceived as wusses who won’t survive when poo poo hits the fan,” said Stacy, a Texas Democrat who recently caught the prepper bug. She spoke with Vocativ on the condition we not publish her last name. “I, for one, don’t like to be thought of as some precious snowflake.”

Pretty ironic.

Its just said that these rich idiots can pay people to go out and do their dirty work and possibly incite trouble and danger to people that are there to watch or there to protect. I really do hope that everything goes smoothly and they just blow a lot of hot air during the ceremony. Im not sure that I believe it will turn out peacefully though. Too much happening behind the scenes for everything to be peaceful protests.

Just because people stopped donating to the clinton global initiative and they are shutting it down doesn’t mean they are out of money. It just means the cgi was nothing more than a money laundering system for people to funnel money to the clintons, with the expectation that hillary would become president. When she didn’t, no reason to donate.

One of the comments under this story says that there will be thousands singing “We Shall Overcome” within earshot of the inauguration as it’s going on. These people are disgraceful.

What would have been done if this had happened 8 years ago?

But to be on the safe side, i’m doubling my food storage…

Okay, Clinton’s HHS secretary was Donna Shalala, and a stupider person you wouldn’t want to see. My husband and I had the opportunity to have lunch with our then-congressman in the House dining room. He was running late, because he was in a hearing about hillary’s health care plan, so he had an aid take us over to the hearing and we got to watch some of it. Shalala was testifying. We got the distinct impression she knew nothing about hillary’s health care bill–or anything else, for that matter.

And so it begins

PEN America hosts the flagship New York City event of a national rallying effort under the banner of WRITERS RESIST. This literary protest will bring together hundreds of writers and their fellow New Yorkers on the steps of the New York Public Library in a collective stand to defend free expression, reject hatred, and uphold truth in the face of lies and misinformation.

Coinciding with the birthday of Civil Rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., this family-friendly event will feature readings and performances by some of the biggest names in arts and literature. Award-winning authors Andrew Solomon, Masha Gessen, Laurie Anderson, Rosanne Cash, Jeff Eugenides, Amy Goodman, Jacqueline Woodson, Monica Youn, A.M. Homes, Moustapha Bayoumi, Alexander Chee, Michael Cunningham, and others will read from a curated set of diverse writings and seminal texts that embody the ideals of democracy and free expression including excerpts from the Constitution, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s sermons, George Orwell’s 1984, the Federalist Papers, and other prose and poetry selections. Broadway Kids Against Bullying will perform the new single ‘I Have a Voice.’

As the rally comes to a close, participants and audience members will deliver PEN America’s pledge to defend the First Amendment—signed by more than 150,000 individuals, including all past U.S. Poets Laureate—to the transition team of President-elect Donald J. Trump, who will take office just five days later on January 20.

https://pen.org/event/writers-resist-loudertogether/

There is a list of some of the writers who were there. If you read, you might check out the list and consider whether you want to support them any longer.

Apparently my cover is secure, since my friend obviously doesn’t know what I think of the idiot in chief and his grimacing wife.

This is yet another stupid futile gesture of the left, but at least not as dumb as #bringbackourgirls.
