  1. SOOOOOO, Hows that dredging going in California? Finding lots of Gold yet? I figure you guys are rich about now, as OGM and others stated that you had the Constitution on your side! Please post some pictures so we all can see how your doing!
  2. Probably heals faster than we do....great news Skip!
  3. Some interesting reading from NASA http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2006/10mar_stormwarning/
  4. Jim, go ahead and vent brother....we are here and we have been through similar experiences on trips. California is one messed up state.....Please PM me about your solar issue, I have some experience and would like to hear what you are doing with it. Tomorrow is another day.......Love your mom while you have her, mine died very young.
  5. It was announced today that once again Sheriff Arpaio has been threatened. Its not the first time, but the concerns at this point is that the text from an international phone number, is spreading like wildfire. Proof of 2 things: Joe is doing his job and that the Cartels will stop at nothing. They will reach into our country when they need to. http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/news/immigration/mexican-drug-cartel-sheriff-arpaio-07292010 http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/08/02/mexican-drug-cartel-allegedly-puts-price-arizona-sheriffs-head/ I am sure that Sheriff Joe will be well protected, but please remember that the Nogales Sonora Police Chief was killed less than 3 miles from the border in March of this year. http://www.kgun9.com/Global/story.asp?S=12214114
  6. I agree Terry, also the Tubac and Elephant Head areas (very close to that area) have experienced the same anomalies. The impact is both physical and financial.
  7. As many of us Prospect the desert and lonely places, I have always maintained that the illegal immigration issue and the Drug cartel issue, is a major danger to us. This thread will be dedicated to facts about Drug cartel activities in our areas of interest. Illegal immigrant and Drug running corridors in relation to prime prospecting spots and areas of interest. Area closures News items w/links that may be applicable to the dangerous issue affecting the entire border region. This is not a Political thread and I will be asking Skip to remove any Political posts, so they do not get off topic. I am currently involved with the Border Patrol here locally in southern Arizona and 7 southern Arizona Police and Sheriffs Dept's. 2 New Mexican Sheriffs Dept's. 1 California Sheriffs Dept. and 0 Texas (still trying). I appreciate those of you that do not live in these states or think that these issues do not affect you or your Prospecting. I would ask that you respect that it does affect many of us. But if you think it doesnt affect you, how about the Nun that was killed by an illegal immigrant that had been released by ICE, even after he already had 2 prior drunk driving arrests? http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/aug/2/illegal-immigrant-killed-nun-released-by-feds/?page=1 This happened this last Sunday morning. Thank you in advance for your support and if you wish to comment or send me information that I can verify, please message me for my email address.
  8. Dogs are tough my friend. I am darn glad that you said no to the euthanasia. Even if you had to carry her, she will still love you and time will heal her wounds.
  9. I guess you could say, you "Dredgers" suck it harder....
  10. There once were two Prospectors, named Eldorado and Bedrock Bob, who were the best of friends. During one particular night of revelry, the two agreed that when one passed on, the other would take and spill the contents of a bottle of fine, Whiskey over the grave of the fondly missed and recently dead friend. And as fate would have it, Bob would be the first to pass. Eldorado, hearing of his friend's illness, came to visit his dear friend one last time. "Bob," said Eldorado, "can you hear me?" Faintly, Bob replied, "Yes, Eldorado, I can." Bashfully, Eldorado started, "Do you remember our pact?" "Yes, I do Eldorado," Bob strained. "And, you'll also remember that I was to pour the contents of a fine, old bottle of whiskey over your grave, which we have been saving for, going on 30 years now?" said Eldorado. "Yes Eldorado, I do," whispered Bob. "It's a very "old" bottle now, you know," urged Eldorado. "And what are you gettin' at Eldorado?" asked Bob, briskly. "Well Bob, when I pour the whiskey over your grave, would ya mind if I filter it through my kidneys first?
  11. Ah....I see you have been burning up the boards all across the web eh? Looking for keyboard glory are we? hmmm....what a waste.
  12. As you joined the forum at 605pm and this was posted at 610pm, I was wondering where you had copied and pasted this from? Surely with your "razor-cut" hand you could not have typed this out in 5 minutes?
  13. UM....huh.....um....huh......ok......um......thanks.... As we no longer have a Politcal section and religion and Politics are the 2 main topics that gets peoples dander up....can we not have a religious section too?
  14. One day in MT, the prosecuting lawyer asked Allen on the witness stand, "At the scene of the accident, did you tell the policeman you had never felt better in your life?" "That's right." The Allen replied. "Well, then, how is it that you are now claiming you were seriously injured when my client's auto hit you"? Allen explained. "When the policeman arrived, he went over to my Mule, who had a broken leg, and shot him. Then he went over to Rover, my dog, who was all banged up, and shot him. "When he asked me how I felt, I just thought, under the circumstances, it was a wise choice of words to say 'I've never felt better in my life.'
  15. Please let me add the Gold Bug and Gold Bug2 as options. I use a Gold Bug 2 and its a darn fine detector.
  16. Thats what I was saying too. The increase in paperwork is enormous. at IRS.GOV the section for "whts new" is large and demanding.
  17. Well BP better hurry if they want to hire illegal Democrats.....they are starting to leave AZ....
  18. Deep In the back woods, Terry Solomon's wife went into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed Terry a lantern and said, "Here. You hold this high so I can see what I am doing." Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. Whoa there, said the doctor, "Don't be in such a rush to put that lantern down. I think there's another one coming." Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "Hold that lantern up, don't set it down there's another one!" said the doctor. Within a few minutes he had delivered a third baby. "No, don't be in a hurry to put down that lantern, it seems there's yet another one coming!" cried the doctor. Terry scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor, "You reckon it might be the light that's attractin' 'em?
  19. You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn't like me anyway. I was thinking about old age and decided that it is 'when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it' I thought about making a fitness movie, for folks my age, and call it "Pumping Rust." I know, when people see a cat's litter box, they always say, "Oh, have you got a cat?" Just once I want to say, "No, it's for company!" Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do -- write to these men? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen could look for them while they deliver the mail? Or better yet, arrest them while they are taking their pictures! I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me, they were cramming for their finals. As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve.
  20. Well Gee Bob, while I agree with you, I thought according to all the experts, that dredging was coming back to California??? The total disregard for the Constitution and Federal Law in that state, is rampant. It used to be said "So goes California, so goes the Nation". I think that has changed at this point. With a weak Governor, the love of illegal Democrats and the attack of the 50 foot Pelosi....California has gone way past its own norm. Businesses are leaving Cali in droves (reducing its tax base) and so are people in general. I guess what I am trying to say here is that California's problems go much deeper than the rest of the nations, because of the broken political system. It is broken, in my estimation because the Democrats have past so many bad laws, that middle thinking Independants and Republicans are or already have fled. One way to totally lean the state "left", is to change and stop teaching the History of the state. But of course, this is also being tried all across America too. :twocents:
  21. Skip your facts are right and as I said, I look for a hybrid of that law. With deploying the 1099 on every transaction over $600.....well surely you must realize that they will stop at nothing to poke into our "poke".... In studying EO 6102 during that time there were a lot less "rich" people in the nation per capita. The taxation of America is going to begin in earnest. Frank is not far off though....the more laws you have, the harder it is to fight them and the Government. One more thing if I am be so bold. The Cap and Trade bill has ben shelved. As I said a few months ago, look for another Executive order, giving the EPA the power to limit carbon output and actually fine the offenders. Giving the EPA that power gets around Congress and also calling it a "Tax".
  22. Its really not a Gold Tax, it is a small business tax. Any business that has any transaction over $600 will have to file the 1099. This is not only very bad from a financial point of view, but it is also horrible because it will be very time consuming. As if our tax laws are not bad enough. What this will do, is make some Gold transactions from guys like us, go to the black market, if you sell over $600 bucks at a time, So I wonder if we wil sell our Gold in smaller quantities to avoid filing. There is another concern I have besides this law. It is something passing like the Executive Order 6102. FDR passed this law back in 1933 and made it unlawful to hold/hoard ANY Gold, with a few exceptions. Of course this was changed by Republicans....But as Obama is really following in the Socialist footsteps of yesteryear, I am a bit worried that he may try something like that order, albeit a hybrid of it. We are already losing access to lands to even hunt for Gold and other metals, so any further legislature that would attack the collection of metals, would really hurt. I welcome any opposing views on this.
