Localized food production? Like how are you going to grow enough food to feed New York City by growing in or near New York City? Not much arable land and a short growing season add up to not much food.

I'm all for buying locally grown produce, but I live in a mostly rural state that grows a LOT of food. There's a reason that most food is grown in areas with low populations - it takes a lot of space to grow crops.

That's the way I deal with it, too.

I'm hoping that so many people will complain about Microsoft's spyware that we may get their attention, but I'm not holding my breath.

I work all over the Southeast and I'm spreading the word everywhere I go. The people I work with know and trust my opinions.

Trump has his faults, but I'd still prefer a man or woman who has signed the front side of checks over somebody who has signed only the backs of checks. Sanders, Obama, Bush, Hillary, etc. never held a real job or ran a business in their lives. They know squat about how an economy is supposed to work.

I have Charter cable and it's great, but for sports on local channels I go with my rabbit ears. It's OTA uncompressed HD and even though Charter's picture is fine, the difference is very visible. Sports, especially football, is all I ever watch on my local channels.

I also get an average 66 Mbps from their internet service and I see no need for anything faster right now. I don't have a 4K television so I don't have any experience with needing to stream 4K, but I think the service I have now can probably handle it.

It depends on how long the apocalypse lasts. It's not hard to store two or three years worth of green coffee beans and roast them when you need them. Two years is the max time usually recommended, but I think they would last at least 50% longer than that, albeit with somewhat less quality.

I roast my own coffee. What is a K-cup?

This is not the FBI's call. Only a court can decide if they have that power. Since when do we let law enforcement make up the rules?

Of course the way courts have been going against us the last few years, I don't see them restraining the FBI from doing anything it wants to do.

Enjoy your freedoms while they last. They won't be around much longer.
