    I can't imagine losing my spouse like she has, or where that would lead me. She has chosen a path I might also take if I was in her situation. If she wants to live a simple, off the grid, self-sufficient life, damn the man, she has every right. She's got nothing left to lose. More power to her.... I hope she kicks some bureaucratic ass.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.


    Honestly with no kids at this point if my wife were to pass away chance are very high I would live this lifestyle. I would buy 100 acres put up a small cabin and be as close to self sufficient as possible.

    This pretty much covers the situation:
    Cape Coral code enforcement officers somehow made this determination without venturing inside the home. There’s a good chance they just looked at the water bill for that address and realized the city monopoly had been thwarted.

    You are welcome to come live off the grid in Detroit. It's a libertarians wet dream.

    Moreluck and yourself are just alike. Neither of you can handle other people living anything different other than the small little box you both live in. Sad to see 2 people so gripped by fear.

    BTW Road, did your ancestors justify slavery on the grounds it civilized and taught the work ethic to those they saw as savages?

    Bzzzzt.

    I live my life with so little fear, it would frighten even you.

    I imagine this is really a case of government bullying run amok. I don't think those officials thought they would win if she fought back, but the point was to scare others from following in her footsteps. I hope she wins and can continue to live her off the grid lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with it.

    I suppose changing quotes works well for you, since you can't deal in actual facts.

    So Brett can change content? Is that what you are saying?

    Worst mod evah.

    I take that back, 9.5 was the worst ever. You are gaining, though.

    As I thought, your reading comprehension is weak.
    No Brett cannot change the content within a quote ... but he can with the reply.

    Let me know if I need to draw a picture.

    I see. It's just that I have been warned in the past for doing just that. Different rules for different posters. That I get.

    Pictures and words confuse me. Any other way to communicate?

    You obviously don't understand.
    I will put some pictures together for you so you will understand like everyone else on BC.
    Frickin waste of my time but I'll do it for you.
