    Are you paying to relocate these couples? Do you already have the land that they will live on? Why in America? Why not do this in the UK where you are located?

    Too many laws and smaller audience in the UK?

    I went to the Raw FB page. Someone had asked if singles were accepted. They never answered but if so this could be the opportunity that @chelloveck has been waiting for.

    Yea, Chell should check these Yahoos out... He might even get a VISA to enter for that...

    Oh and I would make a wonderful team. At the least we'd be very entertaining (in an odd couple 'liberal/'conservative kind of a way :ROFLMAO:), and SM would probably not be trolled/trawled for contestants / subjects for similar docu-dramas/farces ever again. ;)

    Teaming up would be on the same basis as "visa sponsorship"....hardworking, and no slackers....oh, and separate bedrooms. Snorers interrupt my beauty sleep. :sleep:

    According to the scuttlebutt.....allegedly Australia....though some SM conspiracy theorists think that I'm a US citizen trolling fellow US citizens. ;)

    We doubt if he could get a work permit here for the off-gird series, because he hate Trump... which leads to the conspiracy, why would an Aussie even care about Trump? So he must be a troll.

    Nah, I think @chelloveck is secretly a Canadian posing as an Australian. [​IMG]

    I don't hate TRump. Some here mistake contempt for hatred. Instead of actually making America great again, he is doing quite the opposite. Donald J's Presidency just goes to show what vanity, chutzpah, mendacity and an overweening self absorbing sense of 'destiny' can achieve; but it's all a house of cards with little actual sanity or substance. That house, some 6 months old, doesn't have a great deal of structural integrity....with cards like Dubke quitting, Preibus and Spicer vulnerable to falling (or being discarded), and with Bannon and Kushner indulging in dominance power games against each will be interesting what the Senate Intelligence Committee's questions of Comey this Thursday might reveal. There is also the Sword of Damocles that Mueller's 'Russian Connection' investigation represents to TRump's occupancy of the Oval Office.....interesting times.

    I have explained my response to this question in several threads over the past several years....The short answer is, as a second (or lower) tier, 1st world nation with a relatively small population (compared to our regional neighbours), and with reasonably abundant untapped natural resources, it makes sense to have a sound, sane, sensible occupant in the White House, rather than someone who more resembles King George III, than George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson or John Adams. Quite frankly, the fact that Donald J, has the capability to launch a nuclear strike, should have everyone petrified...particularly if he confuses his twitter send button with the 'football' launch button. :eek:

    That accusation has periodically been made by conservative snowflakes and butt-hurt interlocutors who have occasionally butted heads with me. I enjoy a good, well argued debate, supported by evidence...some just don't appreciate my debating style...that doesn't prevent me from liking them as individuals, nor acknowledging positive, sound contributions to the collective knowledge base of the SM tribe.

    Seeing an interlocutor putting forth a better framed, logically rational argument interests me more than just simply stirring the pot for its own sake. Unfortunately what I might prefer, isn't always what I get.:(

    Yep. "Everyone", like North Korea, Iran, China, etc., etc., etc. We finally have a President with balls, again.

    Begging your pardon, there is no such thing in existence.

    So, I'm just sitting here, scratching my head, and wondering how we got so far off topic.

    Ditto. Though I am unsure if the OP of this thread will be visiting again to answer our questions. I do wonder why there little production companies that try to create reality prepper/off-grid series. I think much of main stream scoffs at off-grid/ preppers. So why the fascination?

    Well, the o/t part was probably my fault. I should have started another topic. But, all too often, people who start such threads rarely return to "the scene of the crime", after they have successfully SPAMMED a site.

    They also must be pretty ignorant of true preppers. I imagine most would prefer to have their privacy. I mean, I wonder how many of the [coo] on this forum would even agree to such a thing? I wouldn't, personally. NO!! While I am not an overly private person, being plastered on television would certainly put one in a light they may not enjoy too much. hissyfit And, people who make documentaries and similar shows, honestly don't give two shites about us. [shoked] They are solely in it for the ratings. [poo]

    If she comes back at all, I'll buy a round for every member that checks in since to OP went up (at my choice of pub.) That, along with the rest of those that have fished in the monkey pond rely on their bait. We'll never know if there was a victim recruited.
