Went homeless. Done Guerrilla Grazing by choice ever since…


….

“Aaron Fletcher has grazed his sheep and lived off the land as a traveling shepherd for 12 years. He calls it guerrilla grazing (a step above guerrilla gardening, he says) and he lets his sheep graze – with permission- public parks and side lots. Homeless by choice, he offers his services to small farms in exchange for food or a place to stay (though half his calories come from his sheeps’ milk).

With a tiny metal cart home pulled by his sheep he has a bed, a refrigerator/evaporative cooler, a shower (he uses a pesticide sprayer to pump up the water pressure), power (solar panel), sun oven, a mailbox stove for heat, bicycle tire wheels and a corrugated plastic roof.

Fletcher makes cheese and butter from his sheep milk and forages for seeds, fruits, vegetables and herbs. He’s created a map for foragers in his region. He makes some money with his scythe business – cutting noxious weeds for locals -, but he insists he’s not interested in making money and just hopes to serve as an example for other homeless interested in guerrilla grazing.

I’m not crazy about a few of these things [going to the bathroom through/under the cart?]…but I’ve been eyeballing solar stoves like that, for a while…

…I’ve also used a clean [never before used] pesticide sprayer as a make shift shower…They do work…perhaps not amazingly…but it’s better than nothing.

I don’t know how much I’d really trust some of the food he’s just keeping around like that.

For a homeless guy, he’s got a fairly decent thing going on there.

I presume he’s not in one of the states with more brutal winters.

CNN WRECKS Cancun Cruz After He Mocked Reporter In The Field…

“Rather than running off to Cancun in tough times, @clarissaward is risking her life to tell the world what’s happening,” CNN PR tweeted in response to Cruz. “That’s called bravery. Instead of RTing a conspiracy theorist’s misleading soundbite, perhaps your time would be better spent helping Americans in harm’s way.”

Afghanistan: The Afghans Must Choose…

Date: August 19, 2021

I meant to say this in another post…but Jimmy Dore is right…

If the Afghans don’t want the taliban to be their overlords, then they must uprise and overthrow the taliban.

We [any of the nations previously involved] cannot do it for them…We will never be able to do it for them.

We armed them to the teeth, trained them and paid them for nearly two decades…while our own economy has gone strait into the toilet…a circumstance which is unsustainable…and for all of this, they have chosen to let their country fall to the taliban.

They have chosen for things to be as they are.

It’s a sad reality…but if Afghans wont even stand up and defend themselves [fight for their lives]…you cannot save a country of people who behave like this.

Maybe…who knows…maybe that “300,000 man” army, or whatever number it really is, has retreated into other countries, or decided to lay low, regroup and come back fighting?

I have little faith in this…but, I suppose…if any Afghan army honestly exists, there may be a possibility of retaking the country.

But, again…It’s the population [including said army], which is going to have to do this…They are the only ones who can run the taliban out of power in their country.

However shitty some of the U.S. alliances and behaviors may have been…we still paid at least a trillion dollars, to give them a 21 year window to organize and do something…

…That is no small thing…and it’s time Afghans stood up, and started showing those inhumane taliban fuckers, what’s what.

Yes…this means the regular population must pick up the guns, and start picking off the taliban terrorists who are currently holding them hostage and under threat.

…Yes…this means a lot of the regular population will die in bloody battles…but they need to decide what is most important to them…what is worth the most to them…and fight for it.

They have no business pointing fingers and casting blame, at a country which has given them the best chance at social reform they’ve had in modern history.

I support the U.S. withdrawal…without apology…

There’s a ton of shitty things about the U.S…but we do not deserve blame for leaving Afghanistan.

The tone of this post may sound very wrong coming out of me…but, I am not a pacifist…and when you are facing an inhumane, occupying force like the taliban [or even the corrupt warlords there before]…You are the ones who have to defend yourselves, overthrow and drive out the occupiers.

There’s more Afghans than taliban…You can overwhelm them…You can disarm them, if you are in large enough groups…You can isolate and starve them out…

…the taliban can swing from nooses, just as well as anybody else.

To the Afghan people…I’m sorry cruel and ruthless people have forced you into this…but this is how things have always been.

You have to establish that it wont be tolerated…You have to make it so.

…”violating the Nuremberg Code”…?…

…Hmm.

I don’t so much care what position someone takes in this discussion…nobody has any right doing what these people did.
