It's a nice thought, a nice campaign sound bite, but I don't think it's realistic.

Morning urin has the strongest human smell and most often makes animals stay away from us. Odd

I read your message to my husband. He said you want me to do what? The rose bush is in a whiskey barrow out in the front yard. I told him to just pee into a paper cup & I'll take care of the rest. I think putting some into a spray bottle & spraying it around the top of the garden plot may help too. The deer have been eatting the pumpkin/cumber vines like crazy {it's the only thing that they can get to right now} we found a spot in the yard where one of them has been laying at night. I think it's time to get a small dog {as we have 3 cats, small dog/puppy maybe able to get alone with the cats}

One last reply because, like I've stated before, we've discussed this in the past.

Hasn't almost everything?

If I asked you to express your opinion, you may have a point.

I have both an opinion and a point.


I asked for a link to support your claim that gasoline taxes caused gas to go up .33 on one particular day in ohearto's neighborhood.

I didn't claim that gas taxes caused the increase...I speculated that taxes might have caused an increase.

1) Since you don't live where I do, yes, you'll have to. However, I'm not in the habit of lieing, thank you.

2) No, you misread my point. MY point was that not everyone NEEDS to drive such miles - or even wants to. Plus, neither of us knows whta the future tech improvements will be.

3) Again misreading. The reporter was using the car as a normal driver would. Again, I've NEVER heard of any TV/Radio stations that make the reporters use their own vehicles! That's ridiculous!

4) WHAT?!?! The extra yearly fee is to support road maintenance - like our current gas taxes do. SHEESH! Please stop twisting my words.

5) Cross my fingers & hold my breath? Why? Are you suggesting that any atlernative forms of electrical generation aren't going to work? I'd really love to have a crystal ball that works like yours...

6) I'm done. Your responses are just designed to 'push my buttons'. No information, no matter how valid, seems good enough. My responses are being twisted or their meaning outright ignored. So, that said, I've put this discussion to bed & it will be on ignore.

President Obama making you mad?
