    Obama Or Mccain?

    I'm voting for Obama, albeit with some misgivings. There are a number of interesting points that came up here, the economy, taxation, protectionism, the price of gasoline and government intrusion into private lives. Oh and the price of gas! I predict great social upheaval in America and I think we have a better change of emerging as a republic with Dems in charge of the Federal Gov. We could very well end up with a police state if the GOP retains power. (How many signing statements were there?) What American Don't want to Hear: , HOW TO HUNKER DOWN AND SURVIVE. the "change" (depression) that's at our collective door. To all of you tree haters out there in your SUV's and overpowered heavy luxury vehicles and motorboats, houseboats, airplanes and nitro racers. Recreational petrol users - Even though you are unconscionably selfish and wasteful, I want to say thanks for bringing this problem to a head. I want you to relish your joy riding, please buy all the gas while you still can, because the party's just about over. Unless you're a hedge fund manager, you will be parking it by this time next year. Permanently. Might as well enjoy it a few more times before it turn into a $50,000 pile of useless junk. Find a home-based job or start a small scale local business. Or get a job you can access through public transportation or bicycle. You're daily commute is going to break you financially, if it hasn't already. Many formerly middle class folk are spending 2/3rds of their income on transportation. You can earn a whole lot less money from home to sustain the same lifestyle. With the time saved not commuting - probably ten hours a week or more - plant a "victory garden." It saved countless Brits from malnutrition during and after WWII, and you probably need the exercise! Your investment in producing fresh food insures it's untainted by salmonella - generally a lot more wholesome. Considering the cost of a buck a tomato at the market, a garden can have really help home budgets. I predict a 50 percent rise in the price of food by this time next year. When you add up all the energy inputs required to put some fresh green beans on your plate, you can feel good about growing your own on many levels. Grow some tobacco too, it probably won't be banned, but subjected to whithering taxes. If planting a garden is impractical for you, support local farmers and buy at farmer's markets or subscribe to CSA. Alternately you can join - or start a food cooperative. A lot of people will find it an attractive proposition in the coming months. Help run the market for a few hours a month; it will save you a lot of money. Pay off your credit card debt. They can change the terms of your debt at any time. You are powerless to object. Get out of that morass ASAP. Heating your home to sub-tropical levels this winter will be very costly. Be happy if you can keep your plumbing from freezing. If you can upgrade your insulation, windows and doors, or just new weather stripping and calking..it won't take long to recoup the cost. Get some warm clothes and good boots. You will have to face the elements. A feather comforter kept our pioneer ancestors warm - and alive - in unheated cabins with temperatures down to -40 or less. Don't panic, but be prepared. We live in a global economy and it was inevitable that we should end up living like the rest of the developed world. It is a terrible wrench in that the changes are happening so quickly, but there were plenty of warning signs...most of us chose to ignore them, except maybe them crazy tree huggin' hippies! Now this may surprise some to hear me say it... a born in Massachusetts liberal...I say get a gun and learn how to use it. Some people will get very desperate for food and shelter .... and you may not wish to "share" with them. They will have guns. If you feared the Dem's would take your guns, they can't - the Supreme Court made law and you have no further excuse to vote republican. Because of the global nature of the petroleum market, don't expect that more drilling on US lands or offshore will obtain lower prices at the pumps. We will pay the world price for crude regardless of where it comes from. We will be bidding against the rest of the world with a dollar that's shrinking in value by the hour. Beyond lease payments, oil companies are under no financial or moral obligation to subsidize our ravenous appetite for gas and diesel. In one respect, Obama's relative lack of experience is a positive. He owes few favors to lobbyists for big oil, big ag, and big pharma. And let's not forget McCain's darlings...the bloated military industrial complex. These interests will have to give up a lot for most Americans to prosper. Framing the debate in socialist vs capitalist will not improve our chances of success. We are tired of fear mongering from the right. Governments that combine elements of socialism and capitalism achieve far higher marks than we do when measuring some important things - education, health, wages, employment, social welfare and national security. Business interests, the traditional Republican base, has enjoyed a feast much akin to the golden age which ended on Black Friday in 1929. Many of the controls subsequently established to prevent a similar collapse were dismantled under broad deregulations by a Republican-controlled congress. We are undoubtedly in for one rough ride as the perfect financial storm gathers... This is important. The rest of the world seems to have a lot of enthusiasm for Obama. Aside from his inclusive rhetoric, his face will go a long way to demonstrate objectively that America is a meritocracy. Not a rich white boys club. Although it's a challenging concept to many in the GOP, we can't go it alone anymore. We can't persist in flipping off the rest of the world expecting them not to kick us when we're down. We are down now. The military is stretched so thin and is so damaged by serial deployments can we no longer wield the power we once did. We are like a paper tiger. Not to be all glum about it, just mention you're from hookah forum and I'll slip you some extra crackers for your soup.

    Gun Ban Get's The Hose

    Crazy people are known to run amok - whether it's the Virginia Tech shooter or the Palestinian construction worker who drove a front end loader into a crowd today in Jerusalem. Technology is not an issue. Murderous intent is the issue. The mayhem stopped when an off duty Israeli soldier climbed onto the still-moving loader and dispatched the malcontent at close range. Well done! The loader was headed toward a large outdoor market. An even greater tragedy was averted by a good citizen with a good gun. Survivors of the VT shooting would have preferred a similar outcome, imho.

    QUOTE (mushrat @ May 30 2008, 09:21 AM) You should mention that this dates on these tubs expired in 2006 i think? Everyone knows that, but thanks for the reminder. Just in case. It was in the original thread I think? Do you have any more questions?

  8. QUOTE (AzZ @ May 12 2008, 01:09 PM) QUOTE (khearts @ May 12 2008, 08:57 PM) Thanks guys. I guess Ill get some better foil, we dont have reynolds in the uk, so Ill try my works full on foil which we use in the kitchen. Hopefully this foil will hold up better. Just get some Bacofoil. Not sure if they have an HD version but even their classic foil is nice and thick Extra juicy stuff that is fine cut like AF and Al Amir can be problematic in the phunnel. A solution that has worked for me is to use a fat toothpick or similar to punch the holes in the foil. The "trick" is to push the toothpick all the way down until it hits the bottom of the bowl. This increases the surface area exposed to heat and generally make a huge difference. Hope this helps.

  11. In case you are wondering what the heck happened to my original thread - it was pulled down by the powers that be here at HF. It seems that they consider me to be acting as a dealer. In fact the thread was started after I'd logged several hundred posts, contributing on a variety of topics. This was to be a one time thing, but nobody's listening to that. That is their prerogative. This thread is clearly within what is allowed. My trade reviews still stand. There are a few items I would trade for. Do you have some unflavored traditional tobaccos such as Tombek or Zagoul? Some people buy these and find they prefer something flavored. Also interested in cigars, pipe tobaccos and nasal snuff. I can always use coals, but not just any kind. I am interested in coconut coals specifically, but if you have some other quality brand, we could trade.. I could use some new washable hoses. I still have about five cases - 250g tubs available for trade. There have been problems with my PM features here, so to contact me directly, you must use the email on my profile. Email me with your proposed trade or any questions and we'll take it from there.

    Aw Tubs Still Available

    QUOTE (cartercdad @ Apr 22 2008, 02:32 PM) i might just order 12 more tubs can never have enough this stuff is great i love it and it all tastes good Wow, so happy you are pleased. I just figure out a way to ship these for less money. This product comes in a factory sealed inner pouch - inside the tub. By just shipping these inner bags - labeled and ziplocked for added protection - I can put 6 in a flat rate ENVELOPE which only costs $4.60 in postage. A six pack of AW would cost $24. plus $4.60 postage for total of only $28.60 It looks like, but have yet to test it, the small flat rate box will hold at least 12 and maybe 24 pouches and that ships for $8.95 These rates only apply to the US, APO and FPO addresses. Thanks everyone.

I understand and appreciate your feedback. By no means was I contradicting your credibility, its just the ease of the transaction as you can understand in being an avid eBayer. Thanks for posting that; it's just not as easy as ebay.
