You have a right
...No, all the things you listed are privileges given by states and licenced to bring money into states.  Your real rights are protected, not given, by the constitution.  By definition, a right requires no permission.

Following your line of logic, you could be required to be licenced to speak publicly or post on the internet.  You could be required to register the type of church you choose to attend, or secure prior permission to attend group activities.  We all know of people and places that are up to no good, and for the order of society and the safety of the people, it makes sense to have a better idea of what people are up to.

Freedom is messy and sometimes dangerous business.  The other option is for the government to keep everyone safe by controlling everything.  They can do a pretty good job of it.  You didn't have a lot of riots, shootings, etc. in E. Germany, the USSR, or even Communist China.  When something like that did happen, like the mass killing by knife in China, the government is there to swoop in and make sure it doesn't happen again...although the methods they use are a bit harsh...but hey, everyone ends up safe.

I only know my experiance and so listening to others that are more successful might be in order.  I did find that my poor dirt did better but even then I don't consistantly grow good potatoes.  I just have some good years.  The best potatoes I saw was the first year my dad plowed a new place.  Some good 5 and 7 lb potatoes.  It could have just been perfect weather that year.  I haven't even looked this year but can say that I have a whole garden of raised beds with pure poop in them but the potatoes are in the non raised bed part of my garden.  I am not a great garener and just sorta do it every year but don't put a lot of sience to it.  I would dream of having the dirt I had in kokomo for most things but I didn't get any sweet potatoes in it.

Maby a couple more will chime in.
Good luck
I always find this "gun show loophole" an interesting term.  There is no such thing.  I've never been to a gun show in recent times where I didn't have to fill out some paperwork and most of them require a background check.  The fact that an individual can sell a gun to an individual is what they are really referring to which has nothing to do with a gun show per se.  It has always been that way and I hope it always will be.  The ridiculous thing is that you could more easily buy a stolen gun off the street for less money, less hassle and less paperwork than you can buy one legally even at a gun show.

>You have a right to drive a car ... it requires a license and registration
>You have a right to fish ... it requires a license along with limit rules and species that are in season
>You have a right to own a boat ... it requires a registration
>You have a right to own a snowmobile ... it requires a registration
>You have  a right to hunt ... it requires a license and a season for hunting

By definition if it requires a license,  it is not a right.  None of those are specified in the constitution or the bill of rights.

Hard to beat tupelo... but sourwood is very good.  I actually buy tupelo and sourwood even though I have plenty of honey... occasionally I buy some other interesting things like thyme or eucalyptus.  But I get a lot of honey from people who give it to me and I like almost all of it.  Anything that doesn't have a bitter or mediciney aftertaste I like.

There's no way to tell how many eggs the queen was laying 6-8 weeks ago. Just because she could lay 1500 eggs back then it doesn't follow that she did.

Room is no problem. I could make those beds 100 x 100 with room to walk between them. I have 38 acres of pasture with only a few cows on them and the cows are only on the land during the summer.

So what I am gathering is to make it deep but not to rich or else they will make great green leaves but poor sweet potatoes?

I listen to a conspiracy radio show out of Montgomery on 93.1. Lots of weird stuff out there.

I lived in kokomo indiana for about 4 years give or take.  I had the most beautiful dirt and not a drop of clay and I never found a rock.  I did find a couple of tree roots.  I didn't supliment my dirt.  It grew the most beautiful sweet potato tops I have ever saw but I did not get any root off of it.  I was amazed.    In MO the best I have had was in pretty poor clay dirt.  I find that each year is differrent and it is an odd year when I really do well.  I also think that if you have plenty of room which lots of poeple don't, If you plow up a new area it seems like your first year will really be good.  I have good vines this year and we have cut them back (my wife uses the stems in cooking some times) but I have not broke ground to see if I have any tattors yet.

Ps My tomatoes really were bad this year.  It might be my seeds.  We save seeds every year and I think they start losing the reason you planted them in the first place.  Heck, I know you take risk with saving hybred seed.
