My house hold goes shoping once a month!
We've got nieghbors who shop everyday. They could do that in the city. Theres one almost next door drives 5miles round trip for every meal, every meal, every one. She wasting our futures oil. My grand-kids chance to use oil.
Quit chopping up the rural farm community into tiny untillable little blocks even zoned against animals.
All these houses are getting in my way to drop an eight bottom low in the ground an go more than an eigth of a mile without an ubstruction.
Some tax on gasoline might just have these gas guzzling people drive back to town. Let us food producers do a better job of farming without traffic jams and uncurtious behavior.
I got along without all these country wanta baes for years. I can do it again.
It'd be nice to be able to produce crops without kids speeding and cutting circcles with their hot rods on a freshly planted alfafa field. It would be nice to have year when all my rolled hay had ben left alone by kids running on the bale tops poking holes in them The water getting in and spoiling our feed. Yes our feed That feed I put up to feed my animals the feed that got spoiled an unreplaced by smart kids who think us farmers are a hard lot to get along with.
Yeah let the city wishers go back to town.
I try to be a good nieghbor to the new ones moving in. They buy an acre and think everything they see beyond it is free to run over. I've put up, repaired my fences to keep my stock in and the nieghbors out. the kids cut it. its a convienet daycamp site. I'm privledged to find my cattle out and bring them back homr.
Out here it is rare the really good caring good nieghbor but I try.
Go Home city boy. Let me farm in peace.
and if this ain't enough theres more and it just never seams to get better.
I make my millage count.
