BEEBE, Ark. – Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

Eventually I will make my living with nature photography. A great photo of a bird could possibly bring in thousands of dollars. But I would never endanger the life or well-being of the bird to get that rare shot. I'd rather be broke than live with myself knowing I caused a death in order to make money.

Killing is not for the faint hearted. Killing is necessary for the survival of this Nation. Death and Money, how ironic........

Though I named her Spike, she is not a pet. I would not have a wild animal for a pet either. They deserve to be free. But why would I want to run her and her young out of the yard during summer when I know they are safe and have ready access to fresh water, food and shelter? It's her choice to be here just as much as it's the choice of the cardinals to nest in the shrubs next to the house.

I would never stress myself out trying to chase an animal out of my yard. Too Many people are consumed with that. That's because they are often uneducated about them. I'm trying to change that. I just provide what wildlife needs to survive, then sit back, watch and enjoy it. Then I present what I learn to others.

It would be fun to search after a windstorm. Another activity to put on my list.

Your blood pressure might be good, but waking up every two hours is not normal, unless you're a woman in menopause.
Im probably going through Male menopause? I have night sweats! I set the alarm every two hours so as to get up and check on the lambing ewes. back in the day. My wife got up every two hours to breast feed our children. Ive been hard at work since daylight. firewood fixing fence feeding livestock. My wife took care of the sheep. If In never draw a penny from the social security ponzi scheme thats ok. my parents paid very little and drew over $300,000. they only let you earn $14,000 before they penalize ya. Ive made that much in a month.

Some folks are killers and some aint. when this whole economic & social nightmare goes south the killers will have a big advantage. Being self reliant and having Know How is much better than hoarding bunkers full of stuff. That hoarded prepper stuff will just make you a targret for bad folks . Or maybe the guvermint to confinscate it and redistrubute it(because they have more than their fair share).

I think there not stupid. I think its a denialist cant face the facts & truth core concept. greater nations than the USA have bit the dust its not inconceivable that the USA is in decline and fading fast. Deep in debt. too many taking parasites too few producing makers. And add a few more big clatyclismic earth change events and it all falls apart.Im not in fear of it. I know Ill lose everything Ive worked for and im debt free. I prefer to look at it as a new adventure. What more exciting time to be alive on the earth than at the end of an age earth change. Ill probably not survive but I will embrace the journey. Its likely divine intervention will be at play and most will get just exactly what they get& get exactly what they deserve. I hope so anyway.

Make sure what you make is in cash and don't report it. It's none of their business anyway. Your labor, your money.

Im more afraid of the IRS than someonewith a gun or a lawyer. I report all income and pay my taxes. I do buy heavily in the fall to reduce income. and resell in the spring to recoup the money. Its just kicking the income down the road to the next year. Last year the drought caused a loss on the row crops. and the sales lot just swapped nickles. the scrap iron & rental property made a good profit. So I bought a big scrap inventory & enough materals to build another storage rental building.

I hear ya about the IRS. The problem is SOOOO many people make income that they don't pay taxes on. Why would they single you out?Look at all the people who do odd jobs for cash. Everything from babysitting to mowing lawns, to cleaning houses, to computer repair, to car repair, to drug dealers and prostitutes.

I think if the government really wanted to bring in tax revenue, and make the system fair for everybody, they would make a flat sales tax so everyone would pay their share. No matter how you make your money, you would pay anytime you made a purchase. This way nobody would feel left out. The richer you are, the more you buy, the more you pay.

Yes I have, very pretty and interesting place.

From Albuquerque, NM, or from the east: take Interstate 40 west to Grants. At exit 81, go south on Highway 53 for 42 miles to El Morro National Monument.

When you look back on History you see all those great nations that collapsed within like the Greeks and the Romans and those before and after them and you can trace it back to one thing. BORDERS. None of those great countries could control their Borders and they all imploded. Most imploded when their country was about 200 years old. Well, America can not control our Borders we are a little over 200 years old and the country is changing right before our eyes. I suggest you stock up on weapons, ammunition, water, food and medicine or learn how to do for yourself. Not many people will survive once the thugs band together and leave the big cities in quest for your goods.
