What's in Your Yard? - Part 2


One of the plants that grow in my yard is pomegranates. Pomegranates and their juice are particularly important for their health benefits. They contain substances that stop the oxidation of the LDL form of cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is the bad kind that clings to the walls of your arteries and eventually leads to the blockage of your arteries.
Whenever LDL cholesterol is oxidized, it breaks apart and that can lead to clogged arteries. Pomegranates help to stop the oxidation process and thereby help you avoid the problems associated with clogged arteries.

Pomegranates grow very well in part of the country and have done surprisingly well, even with the severe lack of recent rainfall.

More information on pomegranates can be found here:

Sweet, it's amazing what food you can find on your own property. I have black walnut trees all over. They take some work to harvest the nut meats, but a good supply of food this time of year nonetheless. The only problem being the trees release juglone which is like kryptonite to tomato plants

They grow really well around here. The wife likes to yank them off the bush as she's walking by and chow down on those critters.

We even have sprouts coming up from fruit that has fallen off the trees. Thanks maddog.

I've got pecans and wild mustang grapes but no walnuts.. I love walnuts.

Gun owners…look what’s on the 2010 tax return….
January 30, 2010 by atasteofcreole

Gun owners…look what’s on the 2010 tax return….

As if we didn’t have enough to get upset about! If you have a gun, I hope it isn’t registered!

It begins… more Freedom gone…. the right to protect yourself and your family gone! Now ALL GUNS must be listed on your next (2010) tax return!

Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own.
It will require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.
This bill was introduced on February 24, 2009, by the Obama staff. BUT, this bill will only become public knowledge 30 days after the new law becomes effective! This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee has passed this without the Senate voting on it at all. Trust Obama? You must be kidding!

The full text of the IRS amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage: www.senate.gov. You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2099. You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do. Please send a copy of this e-mail to every gun owner you know.

Text of H.R.45 as Introduced in House: Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009: www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text
Obama’s Congress is now starting on the firearms confiscation bill. If it passes, gun owners will become criminals if you don’t fully comply.

It has begun… Whatever Obama’s “Secret Master Plan” is… this is just the ‘tip of the iceberg!’

Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House. This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.
Even gun shop owners didn’t know about this because the government is trying to fly it under the radar as a ‘minor’ IRS revision, and, as usual, the ‘political’ lawmakers did not read this bill before signing and approving it!

To find out about this – go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Goggle HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm – any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless: 1) It is registered 2) You are fingerprinted 3) You supply a current Driver’s License 4) You supply your Social Security number 5) You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing
Each update change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25. Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.
There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18. They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 years in prison.

If you think this is a joke – go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this.. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family pass this along.
This is just a “termite” approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense – chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not..

Search Results – THOMAS (Library of Congress) <http://Thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.45 :

H.R.45: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 – U.S. Congress – OpenCongress http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/show

H.R. 45: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 (GovTrack.us) http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-45

Please…. copy and send this out to EVERYONE in the USA , whether you support the Right to Bear Arms or are for gun control. We all should have the right to choose.
