    So... you do notice you had to change it to "any company that doesn't do 50% government work," which is still undefined, in order to arrive at having a few people actually vote? Essentially, if you're looking for work but also want to vote, you are completely forbidden from a number of careers, many of which used to be quite respectable. I know that we provide service to people who're on Medicare --- which they paid into, and which even Dr. Paul concedes is not some kind of "entitlement" --- but I guess I did not realize that everyone from the radiologist and neurosurgeon, down to the parking attendant, was complicit and should be barred from voting.

    My mom didn't pump her own gas until about 15 years ago; dad always took care of that. I do know that some women don't like doing it during the work week due to the chance of getting that one obnoxious drip of gasoline on themselves or their shoes while putting the nozzle back on, but they can always go back on the weekend. Some ladies have never had a problem at the pump:

    Yeah Lord knows you don't want anyone in the medical field to ever be able to vote, simply because the insurers (more people who can't vote anymore) can't compete with the big ugly Gov medical systems for prompt and consistent payment. No one working at the banks, either, even if they are a lowly teller. I'm not entirely sure who would be voting in your ideal world. Some examples would be nice...

    So essentially, no one in healthcare, very few in manufacturing, no one in the military, very few farmers, no one in the energy sector, very few in finance, no teachers, no firefighters, no police, no one who works at the airport, no one who works at the DMV, provides transportation for old folks' homes, no professors, few people in construction, and a few dozen other professions. Sounds like the place is going to be run by beauticians.

    It depends on what situation they're talking about surviving. Most of that list is utter garbage for an actual SHTF scenario, though by all means add it to the 1000 other things these sites suggest you have with you; it'll slow you down long enough for me to outpace you and find a good spot to hide and hunt. Lipstick would be good if you had to leave messages of some kind or to doll yourself up to look more helpless. If you have the right shade, it makes a very convincing series of bruises, and people eat that stuff up. Anything to make yourself look pitiable instead of dangerous in the right situation; lulling people into a false sense of security can be its own weapon. Of course, I won't need to pretend that I'm pitiable if I'm lugging around a bag of kitty litter and a five-gallon potty bucket.

    Put me down as someone whose check is still largely provided "by Government," considering that our largest payer is Medicare. The part you're missing, is that while not everyone pays income tax, they are subject to the whims of elected officials. You're looking at it through the lens of the current situation. Consider, instead, teetering on the brink of war and with the ability to toss a draft in there. Some of those "double votes" proposed earlier would come in very handy. Send the poorest out as cannon fodder, keep the people at home down and oppressed and on the Government dole, and rinse/repeat. Mind you, it's not a good situation now, but I don't think using adherence to income tax payments as a criteria for who's a good enough citizen to vote is the answer. Never really thought I'd see the day people would argue that here, where it used to be that NOT paying your taxes was grounds for applause.

    Don't know about their reasons, but leftovers are generally not okay in my family (particularly with the older folks). They have weird things about not eating the same thing two days in a row, fresh or not. I don't particularly like leftovers unless they're completely reinvented/reprocessed, and I don't take doggybags (but I also order what I'm going to eat and that's it, even if it's a kid's meal or an appetizer instead of an entree). I wouldn't say that makes it embarrassing. The British are strange, though. Maybe they are embarrassed that they're asking for take-home boxes for British food?

    The DNC (or RNC if it happened to Trump) would be able to select a replacement. They could pop someone like Joe Biden in there, or Sanders, but neither would get them the win. It's really more likely they would do anything to get Clinton in there in spite of health or legal standing... and many would cheer them along the way.

    Remember how people get really annoyed when you say "all lives matter"? Remember when some folks mentioned that it's not really a race issue so much as myriad other factors that allow the police to dehumanize a "civilian" and give them the impression that their lives are constantly in danger? Remember when they were told they were missing the point? Nah. Figment of my imagination.

    You learn to live with what's around you. They do get into homes, or at least livable areas (garages, porches, etc.). When I was little both my mom and grandma passed a coiled up cottonmouth a few times before it made a move and got noticed. I remember staring at it from our window while waiting for the snake guy to come get it. Black racers and rat snakes (corn snakes, etc.) are way more common and not that bitey. Racers will usually try to get away as quickly as possible, but I've had some strike at my shoes. I imagine it gives them a toothache for days afterwards. Corn snakes have a variety of tempers, so I generally don't take my chances with them. They are not venomous, either, but the bites are still painful enough to avoid. This is no different than the damned suicidal giant deer up north, or the locusts that Maryland has every dozen or so years (I moved up and thought the world was ending only to be told it was normal for giant red locust grasshopper creatures to invade the area then drop dead and become a crunchy accompaniment to my commute), or the deep ridiculous snowfalls that happen in some areas, or the ice storms that bend power lines and cause trees to touch their toes. Oh and in case you are dwelling on the locust thing:

    It's the same reasoning used to justify voting for the lesser of two evils. We hear it over and over during every Presidential election cycle. Donald Trump is evil, just as Hillary Clinton is evil. Nothing is going to change with either of them in the Oval Office, and even Dr. Ron Paul recognizes that.

    We have all sorts of critters here, but that's the swampland portions of the South and Mid-Atlantic. The mountain areas seem to have fewer horror-movie critters in general, and have prettier seasons.

    I don't know if another article makes it clearer, but there's some ambiguity as to whom the person reported the snakeskin. Maybe they reported it to the people who run the park, and those people (likely unarmed and scared shitless by the unusual size of the skin) called the cops? Or maybe it's a case of small-town-itis where the person who found the skin is related to a cop and called them. Or it could be just as you said, but dunno from this write-up.

    We have had a lot more snakes this year, or at least a wider variety competing around the house. I am willing to bet there's a corresponding boom in critters we don't really see (mice, etc.), but there has also been a MASSIVE boom here in lizards... including some that look a bit different than the usual skittering, push-up doing, orange wattle flaunting Florida types we get all over the place. I do know that one of the corn snakes has figured out how to nudge between the hardie plank around the house (3-4 planks up) and strike out at the huge frogs in the area (experts will say that adult corn snakes don't eat frogs/lizards, but I've seen it happen if the lizard/frog is big and readily available). I'm sure that corner of the house is also where those mice I don't see during the day hang out at night. The corn snakes that won out are gray-mulch-colored, to match the debris and mulch around the area. They look like warped little boa constrictors lol The black racer population is out of control, even with the corn snakes around. Mom surprised one by opening the garage door as it was sneaking along the divot between the door and the driveway. It slithered away super fast and all the lizards in the area stared after it. I hope we didn't embarrass it too much by blowing its cover. But anyway, yes Suz, I'm not so far from you and we have a snake boom, a dip in the dragonfly population, and almost none of the little green treefrogs that pop out after a good rain this year.

    Like phill4paul, I'm anti-Trump, too, but if Trump loses and we end up with Hillary as our next gun-grabbing President, then it will be the fault of the Republican Party and Republican voters who continue to tolerate, endorse, support, and vote for unprincipled, big-government candidates just so we don't end up with a stinking Democrat in the Oval Office. The GOP should have promoted Sen. Rand Paul when it had the chance because he would do far better against Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump can. And, of course, Sen. Paul has a much better record on gun rights than Donald Trump has.

    Well, if Trump loses, then blame the Republican Party for it. For years in these Presidential races, the leaders of the party (with the help of the mainstream media) have shunned, isolated, humiliated, lied, ignored, and ridiculed principled, moral candidates like Dr. Ron Paul and Sen. Rand Paul. Then when those candidates finally drop out of the race (to the GOP's delight), then conservatives are left with establishment-friendly, unprincipled, flip-flopping, egotistical, power-hungry candidates that are used to vote against the excrement that comes out of the donkey's ass on the Democratic side, always with the reasoning that if we don't vote for the Republican candidate, then a Democratic victory will spell the doom for us all. Thus, we always get enticed to vote for the lesser of two evils. So, you know what? If Trump loses, then we all deserve the consequences of it, especially the Republican Party. Don't expect me to vote for the Republican when the Republican Party does all it can to rid itself of statesmen who rightly deserve the title as "President of the United States," like Drs. Ron and Rand Paul, and then uses scare tactics to try to force the public that a Republican douchebag is now better than the Democratic douchebag. Enjoy your chains. You wear them well.
