We grow our own food Defiant whenever possible. No pesticides, irradiating or chemical fertilizers. We are in the process of building a greenhouse for winter. The difference in taste is astounding.

Why would anybody even consider eating fish out of the Trinity, back in the sixties we called it S--t River, the aroma was nausiatibg. Three more years and we will be rid of Barac, his screwedup policies might take a while longer.

Dallas uses the Trinity as a bathroom. Here in North Carolina, I'm constantly surprised at how clean the rivers are. I lived on the Trinity for years, didn't notice any strange odors.

The waste treatment plant at one time sat due east of downtown Ft. Worth, I lived just a little east of it, boy did I notice strange odors, now the waste treatment plant is just west of Arlington and those folks in far west Arlington sure notice those odors now. If you get away from metropolitan ares of Texas you can still find clean rivers here.

<quoted text> Check"Through the Wormhole", narrated by a fine Southern actor.
Have already read a few books by Stephen Hawking through the years. Some are “A brief history of time” 1988 “The universe in a nut shell” 2011 “ Grand DESIGN” 2010” Theory of everything” 2002 as well as many other authors on the subject of physics. Their imaginations is the macro that is exposed with the micro evolving scenarios, to our sciences evolution and the benefits we derive from them. NASA and now the private enterprises that are evolving to ride in the wake of NASA’s discoveries. Such as your driverless car, which has passed muster recently and is being tested on our municipal highways, as we comment.
Mar’s rover? Drones, etc.
Within the fertile imaginations of these geniuses lays the future domains of ours and our decedents to come. Not only in science can we find geniuses and their imaginations that are forming our civilization. Virtually every field you can conceive there is or are geniuses behind it in its construct and evolution. There is where I choose to climb the mountains. Views are breathtaking.. Occasionally strolling through the valleys to observe what the effects of these mountains have on the organizations that flourish there.
Through the wormhole is a spin off from Einstein’s theory of relativity and dimensional warping of conduits of time displacement. Example consider a “U” as one such form of warped space . One could continue to travel along the designated loop of the “U” or take a shortcut from one tip to other. Traversing a shorter amount of time and space to arrive at another point in time/space. Warping of space has been proven to exist. Our Jules Vern’s of today, use these discoveries to spin off a multi imaginative stories.
All of this demands our constant attention to the advancement of education, health and security of our civilization. Inequality under regulation becomes essential in any pursuit of those goals.

I think the advent of cellphone technology will usher in the era of cars that drive themselves, ending the carnage on the roads relating to talking and texting, as well as drinking, eating and just plain driving while sleepy. Cars using radar and lasers can already drive better than any person. Getting the public to give up their steering wheels will be difficult, but far from impossible. I'm driving to Texas next week, wish the car would just drive itself while I read.

It’s a dirty job but someone must do it. Trinity’s pollution is pre Obama illuminating your biases once again. Hmm… imagine being down wind from West Texas.
West Texas, with its infamous safety record, has once again come to national attention. Announcing they will now be the Waste R-US of the Nation ! Hazardous waste of all varieties will be accepted.
Ron Baltzer is proud to have a robust complex with its one stop shop with everything in waste control specializing.
Perry is only scratching the back of his buddy Simmons, who has contributed $1.1 Million through the years to Perry’s political campaigns. Simmons, one of the ultra wealthy amongst us, owns the complex, that resides on a 90 acre site that is part of a 1,380 acre site operation for hazardous waste.
Presently they are receiving and or have received the PCB’s from the Hudson River of N.Y., Radioactive waste from the “Cold War” Plant up in Ohio, that was the producer for atomic weapons and as well the Radioactive stock pile from New Mexico. Receiving no less than two shipments per week from just that one facility After all N.M. wants to have 3,706 cubic Meters of that waste disposed of by June 30 2014. Just a few examples of the efficiency of this site that can be found about 350 miles west of Dallas.
Perry has left the Sovereign State Of Texas with a gift that could only be achieved through deregulations and cheap uneducated laborers. Now that’s the republican way… Job Opportunities !…Hmmmm

I just might try a small garden, but it's going to have to get a little cooler than this. Pure sine wave inverters do cost more but it's the only way to go. At least this stuff is modular, so you can just keep adding on.
Am running a 12 volt system right now but down the road I might rewire everything in series for a higher voltage. Less worry about meltdowns.


Hope you have better soil than where I’ am. To saline and full of underground varmints. Opted to go with a container garden. Building up a separate soil can be expensive but solves the problem as it introduces new problems, that as time goes on, are solvable. Experimenting helps to advance the technique of container gardening and its flourishing capabilities. Enjoyable.
Aye I’m running 12 volt and will for at least another year or two. Then I could advance to a 24 volt system. No loans and cash only is my motto for this project.
I’ll be adding a “0” gage main wire soon to field a junction box. That will allow all additional solar panels to feed into it, for dispersals through another “J” box at the main station to the various charge controllers. Gotta have that solid infrastructure. Safety and efficacy demands quality within the frameworks of this independent energy scenario.
Yup modular can be used for many items as some items require Pure Sine. Trial an error or consult a cheat book.. Modulators are good for outings as well… Picnics, camping, outdoor events etc. etc. off the car if nothing else. I have made 4 portable solar panels of 65 watt for extended outings like camping. Experimenting with Vertical wind mill. As side interest
It will have to take advantage of ground wind to suffice at least a 12 volt system. That’s on my back burner.

Maybe Florida can get some next. Most people would prefer a desert area for that kind of waste clean up. Nevada has some waste disposal I think. Workers in Texas are not uneducated. The Texas Medical Center, largest in the world, is full to the brim with educated workers. NASA also employes educated workers. The Trinity River is not in bad shape, I've eaten the catfish there for years. How would you propose this waste be disposed of? Maybe Capt.Kirk could beam it up?

<quoted text>First of all, Ahole, I don't live in the "north" and second of all, if the rest of this "COUNTRY" had not moved into Texas, where would it be? Your state is "RECRUITING OUTSIDERS" to come there, oh yeah, remember the famous words "Remember the what?". Just where in the hell were all those guys from that died so you aren't speaking Spanish. So if what to "spit on the rest of the US" maybe your not as Texan as you claim.
You dumazz yankee, we don't have to ask you northerners to come here. You will come, no matter what. The beauty is, we don't cater to your leftist asses. You either fit in or, you get out. We don't care.

Are you seriously asking where are our guys from the Alamo? I guess they're as dead as your grandma. We all die, don't we? You dumazz.

<quoted text>BTW, here's some info for ya: As of the 2010 US Census, the racial distribution in Texas was as follows: 70.4% of the population of Texas was White American; 11.8%, African American; 3.8%, Asian American; 0.7%, American Indian; 0.1%, native Hawaiian or Pacific islander only; 10.5% of the population were of some other race only; and 2.7% were of two or more races. Hispanics (of any race) were 37.6% of the population of the state, while Non-Hispanic Whites composed 45.3%.
English Americans predominate in eastern, central, and northern Texas; German Americans, in central and western Texas. African Americans, who historically made up one-third of the state population, are concentrated in parts of eastern Texas as well as in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston metropolitan areas.
Texas includes a diverse set of European ancestries, due both to historical patterns of settlement as well as contemporary dynamics. Frontier Texas saw settlements of Germans, particularly in Fredericksburg and New Braunfels. Many Dutch, Germans from Switzerland and Austria, Poles, Russians, Swedes, Norwegians, Czechs, Slovaks, Italians, and French immigrated at least in part because of the European revolutions of 1848. This immigration continued until World War I and the 1920s. The influence of these diverse European immigrants survives in the town names, architectural styles, music, and cuisine in Texas. Lavaca County, for example, is over one-quarter Czech American, Seguin has a large Slovak American community, and Nederland has many Dutch Americans whose ancestors immigrated from the Netherlands. In the 1980 United States Census the largest ancestry group reported in Texas was English, forming 3,083,323 or 27% of the population.[4] Their ancestry primarily goes back to the original thirteen colonies and for this reason many of them today simply claim "American" ancestry, though they are of predominately English stock."
So, what's your point?

<quoted text> Jesus was a Jew. His mother was a Jew. Jews wept for Him while the Romans tortured Him. Had not Jesus been crucified, we could never have been forgiven our sins. Jesus said"Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do". Since Christ forgave, I reckon I should as well. You can do as you wish. Free choice....
Jesus said that the father of the Jews was Satan. He died by Jewish hands.

How does this make Jews the "Chosen" people? You are just stupid enough to believe the children of Satan.

You should research ther lost tribes of Israel and, discover who the chosen really are.

Now you are catching on. White liberals are the scum of the earth. Black people would hate liberals as much as I do, if they knew the truth about them.
I never even heard of Paula Dean until now, thanks to the liberal pigs doing what they do best. Root around in sh!t. In all honesty, the white liberals are the ones who have created all of the race problems in
this country.
We have differing viewpoints when it comes to race and nationality, but I lay the blame right where it belongs on scum like Burnt Rearend when
it comes to the war on whites. They are traitors to this country and to their own race.
I'm all for the races uniting against poverty and corporate rule. But, being Christian, I cannot condone the race mixing.

I want to oppose the rich but, I can't blend races to do it.

We just need to unite, non-sexually, to end the greed.
What's your solution to this?

More proof that you are one of those lying liberal whites, too guilt-ridden, to preserve your own race. You are ok with killing off the white race. I bet you love that Cheerios commercxial, with the interracial family.
Tell me ... why do you live? You're not helping your own people.
You live, to kill your own kind.

Listen - whites did not create slavery.
Indians were not here first.
Mexico was compensated for land they sold.

It's ok to be white. Enjoy it and honor it because, that is your heritage.

You have no conception to how I measure tolerance of various religions, so all of that part of your comment is moot, as usual.
Admits to being a heathen and does not discuss god and yet here he is? Discussing religion. That your family has given up on you I can understand.
Nondenominational is in line with your low opinion of all authorities. Childhood phase that you have not been able to mature out of. Fishing and guns amplifies that. Good old country BOY on the shaded banks of the river. Nostalgic isn’t it.
Your family does not HOUND you? Yup… forgot the country boy on the shaded banks with his gun, fishing pole and his old hound dog.
Thanks for the invite but will decline. Those were the days of a childhood and I have moved on.
You piece of garbage liberal. This country was founded on Christianity, the majority population is Christian.

Christianity does not honor homosexuality, race-nixing, theft, pedophilia, murder or deception.

Stop trying to convince Christians to accept immorality.
Better yet,... why don't you just gotohell?
