The internet is going to become a luxury that many won't be able to afford soon too. If you have to choose between the internet or heating your house guess which will go first? I don't think people realize what is right around the next bend in the road. This society as a whole is sitting on the edge of a canyon and we have started over the edge. It only picks up speed from here. The advantage we have here is we're poor in Maine and somewhat self reliant to begin with. The rest of the country and especially the cities....not so much. Time to take out the bridge in Kittery. Maybe the Mayans knew something we didn't.

Some of us understand what you're saying. Others just can't handle the truth.

Seems like the more I read about lifestyles in other places, the more I like my life in NJ.
Plenty of land, firewood, healthcare.
Only problem is the taxes.

I don't know or want to know about burlington jug handles. Northwest Sussex county doesn't have these.
Car insurance ain't bad. Taxes suck! though.
