I put two traps out. Just gotta see which tunnels are active and you put a trap on those tunnels. Within a day or so you will have your mole. The Tomcat trap doesn't spear them like older style traps do, it just crushes them so there's not a bloody mess....

I fought moles in my yard this summer. Tried gassing them, poisoning them, etc. I eventually found Tomcat mole traps at Lowes, and those traps were awesome. Killed all the moles in my yard in a week, and you can look out at your yard and see when the traps have gone off. I think they are about $...

Those cancelled plans aren't coming back, no matter the level of subsidization. You can't "fix" one part of Obamacare without torpedoing other parts. I.e. you let people keep their plans, then the exchanges won't get enough people to sign up and you get the death spiral in premiums.

What do y'all think is the more likely option at this point.... a 2/3rd's majority in both houses of Congress to overturn Obama's veto, or a constitutional convention? I'd say today that the convention route would have a higher chance of success, although it would take longer to accomplish. There a...
