It was like this in Montana in the late 90s. May still be.
Got a ticket in Montana and the trooper asked if we wanted to pay there. Chick I was with (from Montanta) said she would like to pay but only had a little over half of the fine. As I openend my mouth to offer what was in my wallet I w...

It wouldn't take six months. They would be instantly poor. Things have value when they are rare. Having a million of something everyone else has makes that thing worthless. A loaf of bread would cost $100,000 within days....

[quote] it doesn't make them feel as confined[/quote]
I take a different view here. I've always gotten the smallest crate my dog could stand up and turn around in. If they are really nervous dogs I will put a blanket over the crate except for the door (to make it feel like a cave or den). In j...

My golden doodle was attacked by no less than six small children while 5 drunk adults screamed at the tv for three hours Saturday night. Not one snap,growl, or even attempt to hide. Loved it all and she is only a couple months over a year. Highly recommend.

The secret service, as I understand it, is way more than the guys that walk around with the president. They have people all over and I think they all have the title of special agent. She may have been getting coffee for several years. Of course I could be totally wrong. :lol:...

Thanks for all of the input.
I think its high too but the only reason I would pay for it is because I [b]always[/b] forget to put the can out and then I'm SOL especially if I have people over and we generate a lot of trash. It's easy enough to bring the can out and pick it up the next day, but I...

My 12 year old wants to make extra money. I told him to offer elderly people in my neighborhood to put their can by the road the night before trash day and bring it back the next day. He's thinking of charging $2 per day which would be $4 per week. I think he could easily pick up 20-40 homes. Wh...

I think it's evolutionary. Not in the best people being killed off, but the most ambitious people moved on to greener pastures as the economy moved away from agriculture. As a result, rural towns are left with the land owners, a few good hands, and the least ambitious people of the population. Th...
