Looks like good stuff…

Why O Why do we never get anything like this in SoCal?

You’d think with the Organic masses buying here that something with the title Mother Earth would have a MASSIVE turn out here….

Anyone know of anything WORTH WHILE going to covering the subjects mentioned in the OP that ever gets to SoCal?

The election is over Trump won but i am still having to listen to the snowflakes here . It is quite simple for me to shut them up when i ask them to speak of facts no lies aka the spin .
I was in town picking up feed and a young man was telling his boss he just could not work the day shift because it was just to early for him to get up and come into to work . Sorry but i went off like a wet setting hen . I informed him he has a job some people don’t , if you don’t like your job quit today and i know there are several people that would be happy to have your job . If you worked for me you would be out the door right now and you can go to your safe place and cry buttercup . You want to work but you don’t want to work you can’t have it both ways , this is life you work for a living that is just a fact . The manger who i have know for years walked with me to my truck and told me thanks for my little speech , an older black man stopped and said i sure told it like it is the young people today just don’t know what hard work is all about they want a check but just don’t want to work for it .

Gee, swamp. In your profession, you could make anyone say ouch if ya wanted to ( or just scream in agony) Lol.
I don’t like winter and I don’t like snowflakes. But, you put enough snowflakes together and they get outta control? You got a frigging avalanche.
I kinda prefer the old fashion term for ‘those people’. Starts with p and ends with y. You don’t have to say “oops”. Not that I would. Suck it up, Buttercup.
I think I will share that video.

The Mother Earth News Fairs are great. I went to the very first one they ever had, there at Seven Springs (that was when we lived in PA…it was only about a half hour from where we lived. They are DEFINITELY worth going to…get tickets for the entire weekend, as there is WAY too much to absorb and more classes than you can cover in just one day.

Chad Parther free speech at it’s best , check him out you might agree with his point of view .
The song is funny as heck , y’all should call up the local radio and have it played over and over push it to the top .
Maybe we can get a spoof song by Fender Before the next teardrop fall .

Ajax, I called our country station yesterday afternoon, I heard them play it 14 times, tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.

They received many calls and aired the calls, people love it. It played about a dozen times today so far and more calls to the station requesting for them to keep playing it.

The snowflakes don’t want to come around here, they’ll be leaving with a few black eyes from us deplorable, bible reading, gun toting hillbilly’s.

Didn’t know where to put this so I put it here:

There’s a new song out by Chad Prather and Steve “Mudflap” McGrew called “friends in safe places”, it follows the music of Garth Brooks’ song “friends in low places”.

I tried to copy the video of the song to here but won’t let me do it. You got to google this song and lisen to it, it’s great, I rolled around on the ground with tears in my eyes. The wife thought I was taking a fit.

You got to hear it.

Six degrees with the windchill.

So where are you located?

Perhaps I am reading into it too much, but it reads like there was some big collective sigh of relief coming out of NYC . . . nevermind those living to the West.

We only got about 5″ but it’s snowing and blowing now, I think they call it a wrap around plus we’re getting snow off lake erie now.

They’re calling for another 3″ to 5″ over night, it’s 18 degrees, 20 mph winds, wind chill -2 degrees, winds out of the northwest. We didn’t get as much as they were calling for.

Throw another log on the fire and pop a top.

Im in A, it sucks! Its weather like this that makes me want to hibernate through it, but I’ve got to keep in good shape. I won’t be going to Jiu Jitsu today as the roads are not in proper condition for driving. So I will just be staying home and doing some working out at home. Fortunately I do have enough food in the fridge to last me the day so I will not have to go into my reserves, but I should’ve stocked up on more prior to all this snowfall.

I’ve been chuckling over this all day. Schools officially closed here in NY by edict of his immenseness the &%&*%**^ Cuomo. Shut the schools down statewide since we might get some snow. Really? We have not had serious snow here in years, minus the 7′ that fell in Buffalo a few years back. None of our winters are anything like they used to be and we are in the prime lake effect region. We are used to having serious snow so 20″ really is not a big deal. Sure, the wind could kick up, it might force people to slow down a bit. It won’t make people think to prepare ahead of time and I can only imagine how many generators, gallons of milk, and loaves of bread were sold. Likely cases of water too. These days the news and those in charge hype every little thing to the point of idiocy while paying no attention to important things. So, I will enjoy the roads to myself hopefully as I make my daily commute to work. I won’t have time to worry about a few snowflakes. Real or Liberal… :dots:

If it impacts NYC, then it is news.
As for the rest of us, well, they do not pay attention to what happens outside of NYC.

Two weeks ago, they got snow and it made the national news. A few days later, we got even more snow.
Not so much as a peep.
