A short little story, which happened to me:

I grew 2 plants from seedlings in my backyard, as I
am legally allowed to do. They did very well there.

In November I was planning to harvest them. The day
I had in mind on a Saturday was set. I have two medium sized
dogs, scaring the heck out of anybody coming to the front door.
Friday evening- it was pretty cold- my critters were inside,but
my neighbor's dog barked and barked. At last I went outside
to calm it down.

Surprise, surprise, a car in the alley took off. I did not think that
very unusual, went back inside. Half an hour later the same
thing happened, but this time I was a bit suspicious. When I
went outside the car burned rubber to take off.

Yes, one of the plants had been ripped out of the ground, the
other had lost half of its branches. Needless to say i cut off the
rest of that one and placed it inside.

Man, am I proud of my precious watchdogs, and my 7.5 feet
privacy fence!

Happy Newyears people! (Got to keep my humor.)

if the POTUS gets the TPP through Congress in February

how do you think this would influence the primaries
and the GE? I am really worried that he will do just that,
before another president will be elected.
